Detailing the technical maintenance of turbine and reciprocating engines, this book covers the final section of the FAA's required curriculum. Theory and construction of these engines are also discussed along with propellers, development of aircraft powerplants, and powerplant auxiliary systems.
Covering the first section of the FAA's required curriculum, this volume incorporates an introduction to aviation along with basic lessons on mathematics, physics, and electricity. As the student progresses, specific aviation concerns are addressed, including regulations, mechanic privileges, forms, and tools.
"The Aviation Maintenance Technician Series: General is the first book of Dale Crane's AMT Series, textbooks that were created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market. The General text covers the first section of the FAA's required curriculum, incorporating an introduction to aviation along with basic lessons on mathematics, physics, and electricity. As the student progresses, specific aviation concerns are addressed, including regulations, mechanic privileges, forms, aircraft hardware and tools. Dale Crane's textbooks consist of the most complete and up-to-date material for A&P training. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 requirements and Subject Matter Knowledge Codes from the FAA mechanics knowledge tests. They are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. These comprehensive textbooks include full-color charts, tables and illustrations throughout, in addition to an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of study question sections, with answer keys printed at the end of each chapter. These can be used for evaluation by an instructor or for self-testing. ASA's mechanic textbooks are all-inclusive--no separate, inconvenient workbook is needed by the student or instructor."--Provided by publisher.
This book presents a detailed, flexible system of instruction for the Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) series exams. A&P instructors and educators can utilize the extensive list of course outlines, graphics, color transparencies, and tests to create efficient and engaging curriculum. It includes suggested reference materials and test questions, and covers every topic of the AMT series.

The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook-General (FAA-H-8083-30A) was developed as one of a series of three handbooks for persons preparing for mechanic certification with airframe or powerplant ratings, or both. It is intended that this handbook will provide basic information on principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in the subject matter areas common to both the airframe and powerplant ratings. Emphasis in this volume is on theory and methods of application. The handbook is designed to aid students enrolled in a formal course of instruction preparing for FAA certification as a maintenance technician as well as for current technicians who wish to improve their knowledge. This volume contains information on mathematics, aircraft drawings, weight and balance, aircraft materials, processes and tools, physics, electricity, inspection, ground operations, and FAA regulations governing the certification and work of maintenance technicians. New to this volume is a section addressing how successful aviation maintenance technicians incorporate knowledge and awareness of ethics, professionalism and human factors in the field
The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook-Powerplant (FAA-H-8083-32) is one of a series of three handbooks for persons preparing for certification as a powerplant mechanic. It is intended that this handbook provide the basic information on principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in the subject matter areas relating to the powerplant rating. It is designed to aid students enrolled in a formal course of instruction, as well as the individual who is studying on his or her own. Since the knowledge requirements for the airframe and powerplant ratings closely parallel each other in some subject areas, the chapters which discuss fire protection systems and electrical systems contain some material which is also duplicated in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook-Airframe (FAA-H-8083-31). This handbook contains an explanation of the units that make up each of the systems that bring fuel, air, and ignition together in an aircraft engine for combustion. It also contains information on engine construction features, lubrication systems, exhaust systems, cooling systems, cylinder removal and replacement, compression checks, and valve adjustments. Because there are so many different types of aircraft in use today, it is reasonable to expect that differences exist in airframe components and systems. To avoid undue repetition, the practice of using representative systems and units is carried out throughout the handbook. Subject matter treatment is from a generalized point of view and should be supplemented by reference to manufacturer's manuals or other textbooks if more detail is desired. This handbook is not intended to replace, substitute for, or supersede official regulations or the manufacturer's instructions.
