With every deadly airplane disaster or near-miss, it becomes more and more clear that proper inspection and repair of all aircraft is essential to safety in the air. When no manufacturer repair or maintenance instructions are available, the Federal Aviation Administration deems Aircraft Inspection and Repair the one-stop guide to all elements of maintenance: preventive, rebuilding, and alteration. With detailed information on structural inspection, protection, and repair, including aircraft systems, hardware, fuel and engines, and electrical systems, this comprehensive guide is designed to leave no vital question on inspection and repair unanswered. Sections include: • Wood, fabric, plastic, and metal structures • Testing of metals and repair procedures • Welding and brazing, including fire explosion and safety • Nondestructive inspection (NDI) • Application of magnetic particles • Common corrosive elements and corrosion proofing • Aircraft hardware, from nuts and bolts to washers and pins • Engines, fuel, exhaust, and propellers • Aircraft systems and components • Electrical systems This is a book that should be available to everyone who works on aircraft or is training to do so. The official FAA guide to maintenance methods, techniques, and practices—essential for all pilots and aircraft maintenance workers. 200 B&W 200 B&W

Weight and balance is an important aspect to the safety of flight. An overweight aircraft, or one whose center of gravity is outside the allowable limits, is inefficient and dangerous to fly. The responsibility for proper weight and balance control begins with the engineers and designers, and extends to the pilot and mechanic who flies and maintains the aircraft. This Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) publication addresses this safety-crucial topic and in studying this handbook, pilots and Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) will gain the necessary knowledge on the subject of aircraft weight and balance, in preparation for the FAA Knowledge Exam as well as safe flight and maintenance operations.

Applied Human Factors in Aviation Maintenance

Considering the global awareness of human performance issues affecting maintenance personnel, there is enough evidence in the US ASRS reports to establish that systemic problems such as impractical maintenance procedures, inadequate training, and the safety versus profit challenge continue to contribute toward latent failures. Manoj S. Patankar and James C. Taylor strongly believe in incorporating the human factors principles in aviation maintenance. In this, their second of two volumes, they place particular emphasis on applying human factors principles in a book intended to serve as a practical guide, as well as an academic text. Features include: - A real 'how to' approach that serves as a companion to the previous volume: 'Risk Management and Error Reduction in Aviation Maintenance'. - Self-reports of maintenance errors used throughout to illustrate the systemic susceptibility for errors as well as to discuss corresponding solutions. - Two tools - a pre-task scorecard and a post-task scorecard - introduced as means to measure individual as well as organizational safety performance. - Interpersonal trust and professionalism explored in detail. - Ethical and procedural issues associated with collection and analysis of both qualitative as well as quantitative safety data discussed. The intended readership includes aviation maintenance personnel, e.g. FAA-type aircraft mechanics, CAA-type aircraft maintenance engineers, maintenance managers, regulators, and aviation students.

This book is an attempt to present under one cover the current state of knowledge concerning the potential lightning effects on aircraft and that means that are available to designers and operators to protect against these effects. The impetus for writing this book springs from two sources- the increased use of nonmetallic materials in the structure of aircraft and the constant trend toward using electronic equipment to handle flight-critical control and navigation function.

This series is specifically tailored to provide the information necessary to prepare an applicant for FAA mechanic certification with airframe and/or powerplant (A&P) ratings. These textbooks are designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA Airframe Knowledge and Practical Exams, but also serve as an invaluable reference guide for certificated technicians who wish to improve their knowledge and practice. Chapter structure has been designed to ensure consistent and efficient internalization of the material presented. Photographs and detailed drawings illustrate concepts, improve understanding, and increase retention. This volume of the series emphasizes theory and methods of practical application within the overall topic of the powerplant of an aircraft: the aircraft engine and the powerplant-related aircraft maintenance principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures. It discusses the elements that comprise the systems that bring fuel, air, and ignition together in an aircraft engine for combustion. It also covers engine construction features, lubrication systems, exhaust systems, cooling systems, cylinder removal and replacement, compression checks, and valve adjustments. The specific topics addressed include Aircraft Engines, Engine Fuel and Fuel Metering Systems, Induction and Exhaust Systems, Engine Ignition and Electrical Systems, Engine Starting Systems, Lubrication and Cooling Systems, Propellers, Engine Removal and Replacement, Engine Fire Protection Systems, Engine Maintenance and Operation, and Light-Sport Aircraft Engines.
