EASA Part 66 compliant Module 16 on Reciprocating Engine Maintenance for Part 66 B1.2 and B1.4 airplane and helicopter certification.

FAA Powerplant instructors concerned about how the H-8083-32 mixes turbine and reciprocating systems in the same chapters may consider this textbook in combination with EASA Module 15 (Turbine Engines)and Module 17 Propeller Systems as a substitute for that manual. For the benefit of FAA Part 147 instruction, an additional non EASA required chapter on lights sport aircraft engines has been included.
