Ask the A&Ps is hosting its first-ever live podcast recording at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022 at the AOPA Program Pavilion on July 26, at 11 a.m. Central time. Attendance is free, and guests will get the chance to ask their best maintenance puzzlers, and try to stump the experts. Problems with your cylinder head temperatures, want to know where all that oil is going, or curious if you’re qualified to cut open that oil filter? The Ask the A&Ps live show is the place to find out.

Hosts Mike Busch, Paul New, and Colleen Sterling are experts who frequently write, speak, and consult on a wide variety of light airplane maintenance topics. Every month on the show they answer listener questions and try to solve the toughest maintenance issues thrown their way.

Case in point: the latest episode, "I'm a reformed shock cooling worrier," includes a lively discussion of engine cooling myths and facts, and lean-of-peak operations in carbureted engines. 

Your own questions are always welcome, so email your sticky wickets and stumpers to our podcast production crew, and we might just pick your favorite topic for the live show.
