FAA handbook provides knowledge for earning the Aviation Maintenance Technician certificate, General section. The FAA General test questions are drawn from this book.
The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook—General is designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA Knowledge and Practical Exams for obtaining an FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certificate with airframe or powerplant ratings, or both (also called an A&P license). This volume was developed as one in a series of handbooks for this purpose; additionally, it is an invaluable reference guide for already-certificated technicians and those holding the Inspection Authorization (IA) rating who wish to improve their knowledge.
This FAA handbook discusses the principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in subject matter areas common to the airframe and powerplant ratings: safety, ground operations an servicing, regulations, maintenance forms, records and publications, mathematics, aircraft drawings, physics, weight and balance, aircraft materials, hardware and processes, cleaning and corrosion control, fluid lines and fittings, inspection concepts and techniques, hand tools and measuring devices, electricity an electronics, inspection, mechanic privileges and limitations, and human factors. Also discussed are the ways that successful AMTs incorporate into their daily tasks the knowledge and awareness of ethics and professionalism. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs, with a comprehensive glossary and index.
