9781885544216: Avionics Training: Systems, Installation, and Troubleshooting

"Avionics Training" is the first book to explain avionics in simple terms, with over 400 illustrations in full color. It assumes no knowledge of electronics, uses no math, formulas or confusing abbreviations. The book explains the operation of 30 systems, how they relate to each other, how they're installed and troubleshooting techniques. This is a hands-on book that replaces theory with "hands-on" information. There are chapters on mounting instruments, preparing wires and connectors, running cables, installing antennas and other practical techniques. The book not only covers conventional avionics of the last 50 years, but the most recent technology, such as GPS, satellite communications, collision avoidance, the new transponders and electronic flight instruments (EFIS). "Avionics Training" was written because of new directions in the avionics industry. The demand today is for people with a "systems" understanding---which is required to find problems and replace faulty "black boxes." This is in contrast to people skilled in circuit theory who repair small components inside the box. The need for such skills is disappearing because the new computerized avionics must be sent back to the manufacturer for repair. The result is increasing demand for troubleshooting on the airplane while it's on the flightline, especially as more electronics spread through almost every onboard system. Already adopted as a text by teaching institutions, this book is recommended for any type of aviation technician, pilots, newcomers entering the avionics field, and marketing and manufacturing personnel needing a broader knowledge of the avionics industry.

Book Description Avionics Communications, United States, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. AVIONICS TRAINING is the first book to respond to new directions in the avionics industry. As electronics spread through every type of aircraft, there is a rising need for technicians who understand systems, not circuits. Such knowledge is required to identify faulty units aboard the airplane, often during a quick turn time on the ramp. The book explains systems in simple terms, with over 400 full-color photos and drawings. The book assumes no knowledge of electronics, containing neither formulas nor schematics. It describes over 30 systems and how they relate to each other. Confusing acronyms and abbreviations are avoided; they re spelled out on every page. The book deals with two major trends. First, airlines are insisting that mechanics troubleshoot avionics on the flight line. It s becoming too costly for airlines to staff outlying line stations with radio mechanics. Many carriers already require all maintenance people to obtain an FCC license and cross-training in avionics is growing. The second trend is the disappearing avionics bench technician. When today s computerized avionics go bad, they re sent back to the factory because shops can t afford large automatic test stations and software to repair them. The demand today is for people skilled in RR (remove and replace)---which requires systems-level knowledge. The scope of Avionics Training includes all legacy systems---VOR, ILS and ADF, for example---because they will continue to fly for decades. The book also covers the new generation now entering flight decks; satellite navigation, data communications and electronic flight instruments (EFIS). Weather detection, collision avoidance (TCAS) and Mode S transponders are also covered. Much of the book is devoted to hands-on guidance on how to install instruments, wiring harnesses, radio trays, connectors, antennas and other practical topics related to systems. A final section describes test and troubleshooting techniques. Besides the technician, Avionics Training should prove of interest to the engineer and executive wanting a broader knowledge of avionics industry practices. The book has already been adopted by several colleges and other teaching institutions.
