Based on the original text by Dale Crane, and edited by Dennis W. Wilt,
Practical Electricity for Aviation Maintenance Technicians is intended for those preparing to enter the field of aviation maintenance, for those seeking an introduction to electricity, and for experienced mechanics who want to increase their knowledge of electricity and electrical systems.
The content covered in this book reflects both legacy aircraft fleets and new technologies, including glass cockpit components (ADC, AHRS, and ADAHRS). The included avionics information is relevant to both U.S. and international operations and details the associated antennas, communications capabilities, emergency locator transmitters (ELT), GPS, and both Air Traffic Control and weather radar. Additionally, surveillance is covered including transponders and ADS-B, as well as satellite and FIS-B weather.
Illustrated extensively throughout, each chapter concludes with review questions for classroom and self-study use; glossary and index included. This book provides a solid foundation for keeping up with this fast moving area of technology. An ideal textbook for high school STEM and Magnet programs, and vocational, avionics, and maintenance classrooms.
