Synopses & Reviews
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 airframe of an aircraft: how it is built, maintained, and repaired. It covers subjects such as airframe construction features, assembly and rigging, fabric covering, structural repairs, and aircraft welding. The specific topics addressed include Aircraft Structures, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Assembly and Rigging, Aircraft Fabric Covering, Aircraft Metal Structural Repair, Aircraft Welding, Aircraft Wood and Structural Repair, Advanced Composite Materials, Aircraft Painting and Finishing, and Aircraft Electrical Systems.
This new FAA AMT Handbookand#151;Airframe Volume 1
is one of two volumes
that replace and supersede Advisory Circular (AC) 65-15A. Completely revised and updated, this handbook reflects current operating procedures, regulations, and equipment.
This book was developed as part of a series of handbooks for persons preparing for mechanic certification with airframe or powerplant ratings, or both and#151; those seeking an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Certificate, also called an AandP license. An effective text for both students and instructors, this handbook will also serve as an invaluable reference guide for current technicians who wish to improve their knowledge.
Airframe Volume 1 contains: Aircraft Structures, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Assembly and Rigging, Aircraft Fabric Covering, Aircraft Metal Structural Repair, Aircraft Welding, Aircraft Wood and Structural Repair, Advanced Composite Materials, Aircraft Painting and Finishing, Aircraft Electrical System
Includes colored charts, tables, full-color illustrations and photographs throughout, and an extensive glossary and index.
