All the latest industry standards, approved techniques and new technologies materials, and processes are covered in this updated handbook specifically tailored to provide all the information necessary to prepare for the FAA mechanic certification. Logical chapter structure is designed to ensure consistent and efficient internalisation of the material – including mathematics, aircraft drawings, physics, electricity, inspections, and ground operations – to ensure a firm foundation of the basic principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures. In addition, the guide outlines safety considerations and addresses how successful maintenance technicians incorporate knowledge and awareness of ethics, professionalism, and human factors in the field.
The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbooks Series is specifically tailored to provide the information necessary to prepare an applicant for FAA mechanic certification with airframe and powerplant (“A&P”) ratings. This volume of the series emphasizes theory and methods of practical application while giving the aspiring aviation maintenance technician the foundational knowledge required for A&P certification, such as mathematics, physics, and aerodynamics. These textbooks are designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA Airframe Knowledge and Practical Exams, but will also serve as an invaluable reference guide for already-certificated technicians who wish to improve their knowledge and practice.
Logical chapter structure is designed to ensure consistent and efficient internalization of the material, and the textbook is fully illustrated in color with drawings, photographs, tables and charts, including a glossary and index. The specific topics covered are: mathematics, aircraft drawings, physics, aircraft weight & balance, aircraft materials and hardware, cleaning and corrosion control, fluid lines and fittings, aircraft tools, records and logbooks, inspections, and ground operations. In addition, the guide outlines safety considerations and addresses how successful maintenance technicians incorporate knowledge and awareness of ethics, professionalism, and human factors in the field.
