Resources Library

Welcome to the Savvy Aviation resources library, where you will find hundreds of articles, webinar videos, real-life maintenance stories, and books written and produced by Savvy’s founder and CEO Mike Busch A&P/IA, as well as various other documents that we have assembled for our clients.

Please consider supporting Mike’s prolific writing, speaking, webinars, audiobooks and other outreach efforts and advocacy on behalf of aircraft owners (for which he receives no compensation) by becoming a patron of Mike’s work at, and check out the special rewards that patrons receive.

Mike’s Books

Mike’s Articles

Repository of hundreds of Mike’s maintenance articles published in AOPA PILOT and EAA Sport Aviation magazines, updated monthly.

Mike’s Webinars

More than 100 videos of Mike’s first-Wednesday-of-the-month webinars, presented by EAA and sponsored by Aircraft Spruce, are archived on Savvy’s YouTube channel.

Joe’s SavvyAnalysis Puzzlers

Every month, Savvy’s chief data analyst Joe Godfrey publishes an interesting “puzzler” based on the analysis of real-life engine monitor data uploaded to the SavvyAnalysis platform by one of Savvy’s clients. The goal is helping pilots recognize data anomalies in real time to make good decisions about the safety of the flight, and helping owners to make informed maintenance decisions. Past puzzlers are archived here.

Savvy Maintenance Stories

On a weekly basis, we write up a real-life story of a maintenance issue that we helped resolve for one of our Savvy clients. These stories are archived here.
