For those preparing to enter the field of aviation maintenance, for those seeking an introduction to electricity, as well as for experienced mechanics who want to increase their knowledge of electricity and electrical systems.
Aircraft electrical systems are not limited to the starter, generator, battery and ignition; the electronics are no longer just the “radio.” Today’s aircraft are loaded with electric motors, lights, instruments and heaters, and the avionics and electronic controls have made flight profitable, safe, and efficient.
Practical Electricity for Aviation Maintenance Technicians is provided as a classroom text for those preparing to enter the field of aviation maintenance, for those seeking an introduction to electricity, as well as for experienced mechanics who want to increase their knowledge of electricity and electrical systems.
Content covered reflects both legacy aircraft fleets and new technologies, including glass cockpit components (ADC, AHRS, and ADAHRS). The included avionics information is relevant to both U.S. and international operations and details the associated antennas, communications capabilities, emergency locator transmitters (ELT), GPS, and both Air Traffic Control and weather radar. Additionally, surveillance is covered including transponders and ADS-B, as well as satellite and FIS-B weather.
Illustrated extensively throughout, each chapter concludes with review questions for classroom and self study use; glossary and index included. This book provides a solid foundation for keeping up with this fast moving area of technology.
