Aircraft Radio Systems (English) by James Powell.


Aircraft Radio Systems

The cockpit and equipment racks of modern aircraft are becoming filled with evermore sophisticated electronic systems. This book attempts to describe a certain class of such systems, namely those which rely for their operation on electromagnetic radiation. The subject matter is complex and wide-ranging, hence not all aspects can be covered in one volume. The book is aimed primarily at the aircraft maintenance engineer, but it is also of great interest to the technically-inclined pilot.
