Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you’re thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance.

64 Max interviews Mike Busch, 2008 National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year about his new book, Mike Busch on Engines. Mike founded Savvy Aviation, Inc, which includes a concierge maintenance management service, a prebuy management service, an engine monitor data analysis service, and a new 24/7 fast-response breakdown assistance service. His latest book, Mike Busch on Engines: What every aircraft owner needs to know about the design, operation, condition monitoring, maintenance and troubleshooting of piston aircraft engines, was published in March 2018. His first book was Manifesto: A Revolutionary Approach to General Aviation Maintenance.

Mike was born in New York City and grew up in the northeast. After majoring in math in college, he did graduate work in math and business, and soon after moved to the West coast, where he’s been ever since. After college, he worked in the computer industry as a software developer, and he managed major software development projects for corporations including Computer Sciences Corporation, General Electric, Honeywell, NCR, Phillips, and Visa.

In 1995, he began working fulltime in the aviation industry, when he cofounded AvWeb.com, a well known aviation news web site. He’s also a prolific writer of articles on maintenance that have appeared in many General Aviation magazines including his monthly maintenance column, “Savvy Maintenance” in AOPA PILOT magazine.
