Keeping the general aviation industry connected
AEA Unveils Q2 Avionics Market Report
Avionics sales top $1 billion in first six months of 2021
The Aircraft Electronics Association recently announced its second-quarter 2021 Avionics Market Report. In the first six months of the year, total worldwide business and general aviation avionics sales amounted to $1,069,737,831, or more than $1 billion as reported by the participating companies. The figure represented a 7.1% decrease in total sales compared to the first six months of 2020; however, during the second-quarter months of April, May and June, sales increased 2.1% compared to the same time frame one year ago.

"While it's encouraging to see a modest increase in sales compared to the second quarter of last year, this report is somewhat mixed as it ended a string of sales increases over the preceding nine months," said AEA President and CEO Mike Adamson. "The avionics industry is still facing some headwinds with various supply chain issues and global travel restrictions. With new products and services entering the market, the resounding success of recent trade shows and resilient consumers, there are still positive signs for general aviation to continue its climb."

DOT Reopens AMJP Application Process
The United States Department of Transportation reopened the Aviation Manufacturing Jobs Protection program application process on Aug. 4, 2021, for four weeks, closing on Sept. 1, 2021, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time. All eligibility requirements remain the same, including the requirement to have an active registration in the System of Award Management before submitting an AMJP application. 

The initial application period for the AMJP program closed, as planned, July 13. However, the DOT decided to reopen the application process because some businesses may not have understood the relationship between the AMJP and the Employee Retention Tax Credit programs.

If you submitted an AMJP application before the original July 13 deadline and received confirmation that your application was received, then you do not need to resubmit. The DOT will continue to evaluate and act upon these applications. More...
Avionics Intelligence
Mitigate unforeseen situations with informed decisions
Talking from his office at the eponymous Thom Duncan Avionics at Tennessee’s Fayetteville Municipal Airport several days after his aborted April 17 flight to Sun ‘n Fun Aerospace Expo 2021, Duncan said what would have been his first visit to the event was memorable, but not harrowing. “It really wasn’t; we had fuel, power and the data needed to make good decisions.”

To the trilogy of wasted aviation resources – altitude above, runway behind, and fuel on the ground – Duncan adds avionics capabilities left on the shop shelf. There was no panic among the three souls on the lovingly restored 1960 M35 V-tail Bonanza. “We didn’t declare an emergency because we had the situation under control,” he said. “Things would have been a lot different if the throttle had stuck at idle power.” More...

Theory & Practice: Expectations
August is here, and many colleges and trade schools will be starting up before the end of the month. To be prepared for this experience, you should be aware of what you can expect as a student and what the school or college expects of you.

Let’s start with what you can expect from the college or school. Your educational institution will be invested in your success. You can expect to have the equipment, infrastructure and staff necessary to learn your trade. For avionics, this means the institution should have aircraft equipment and test equipment. Preferably, the school has an airframe, but strictly speaking, an airframe is not an absolute requirement to teach avionics.

When it comes to investment in your success, a quality institution will be regionally accredited. Earning regional accreditation is not easy because the accrediting agencies have extremely high standards. More...

Learn Avionics Makes Training Faster, Easier
As the industry grapples with how to shore up the dwindling numbers of avionics technicians and aircraft mechanics, Learn Avionics in Newnan, Georgia, is stepping in to making training faster and easier.

With Learn Avionics, students can train online, in person or a combination of both through the company’s three types of training programs: online courses focused on introducing students to avionics installations; in-person short courses of two to three days for hands-on installation training on specific avionics systems; and a 12-month U.S. Department of Labor-approved avionics technician apprenticeship. 

“We’re really excited about our recently approved paid apprenticeship program, and we’ll now be able to offer federal and state financial aid support to approved veterans and other eligible students,” said Steve Olive, co-owner of Learn Avionics and its sister company, Oasis Aviation Maintenance, a Federal Aviation Administration Part 145 repair station just southwest of Atlanta, Georgia.

Continuous Education
Avionics makers stay in-house to create new-product training
Avionics makers often satisfy their customers’ needs for new-product training in-house – and in parallel with the research and development efforts leading to those new-product releases. That was the consistent message exhibiting vendors delivered during the 64th annual Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention & Trade Show at Dallas’ Hilton Anatole June 22-25. To paraphrase the remarks of representatives of exhibiting companies, in essence, the development of training materials begins with the manufacturer’s decisions to bring a new product to market.

Before opening customer access to training materials, the avionics OEMs develop and test-fly training for their own technicians. “The best way to assure the effectiveness of our training is to run our own technicians through the programs before we release the product for sale,” explained a representative of one of the major avionics manufacturers.

Frequently Asked Questions: Field Approvals
Question: My local Flight Standards Office does not offer field approvals. What are my options?

Answer: Many Flight Standards inspectors have a false belief that approvals are either a field approval or a supplemental type certificate. But this is a false narrative.

The FAA’s Major Repair and Alteration Data Approval job aid does provide some guidance on alterations and repair, as there is policy that would drive an otherwise major alteration to be treated as a major change in type design and requires a supplemental type certificate. However, absent from this, FAA AC 43-210A describes a standardized procedure for requesting approval of technical data associated with major repairs/major alterations. Figure 2-1 of the AC lists possible resources for approved data relevant to major repairs or major alteration. This list can prove beneficial when trying to find a source of approved data to support your “major” project. More...
