Part# 13-22420


This book teaches to the required levels and to an extent typical of an EASA certified 2 year Part 66/147 aircraft engineering program. This third edition fine tunes alignment of sections to EASA Part 66 Appendix 1, enhances previously under-covered topics, and updates some images.
