Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons: Airworthiness Directives— GA maintenance issues
What is the Process, and Why are they Important?
Is a mechanic or maintenance facility responsible for maintaining my aircraft in an airworthy condition? As a student pilot, I asked my flight instructor for the answer.

You, as the owner or operator, are responsible for maintaining your aircraft in an airworthy condition, and that includes compliance with part 39, Airworthiness Directives.”
