"The Aviation Mechanic Airframe Test Guide is designed to help you prepare for the FAA Aviation Mechanic Airframe Knowledge computerized test. It covers FAA exam material that applies to general knowledge related to aircraft maintenance."--Introduction.
The oral and practical exams are the last steps for certification of an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT). The AMT Oral & Practical Exam Guide by industry expert Dale Crane (edited by Raymond E. Thompson) will prepare the reader for the General, Airframe, and Powerplant exams. This book includes information on the certification process, typical projects and required skill levels, and practical knowledge requirements in a question-and-answer format, with references defined for further study. When taking an FAA Knowledge Exam, you merely verify your knowledge of facts--you interface with a computer and there is no personal involvement. The AMT oral and practical tests are different: you work one-on-one with an experienced mechanic evaluator who is able to not only judge your mechanical skills, but observe how you think and see the way you solve problems. The examiner determines whether or not you possess the knowledge and skill level needed as an entry-level technician, as defined by the FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS). The AMT Oral & Practical Exam Guide will help you prepare for this significant step towards your new career as an AMT.
From the author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes this extraordinary thriller about airline safety, business intrigue, and a deadly cover-up. #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “The pacing is fast, the suspense nonstop.”—People At a moment when the issue of safety and death in the skies is paramount in the public mind, a lethal midair disaster aboard a commercial twin-jet airliner flying from Hong Kong to Denver triggers a pressured and frantic investigation in which the greatest casualty may be the truth. “A one-sitting read that will cause a lifetime of white-knuckled nightmares.”—The Philaelphia Inquirer “The ultimate thriller . . . [Crichton’s] stories are always page-turners of the highest order. . . . [Airframe] moves like a firehouse dog chasing a red truck.”—The Denver Post “Dramatically vivid.”—The New York Times
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 powerplant of an aircraft: the aircraft engine and the powerplant-related aircraft maintenance principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures. It discusses the elements that comprise the systems that bring fuel, air, and ignition together in an aircraft engine for combustion. It also covers engine construction features, lubrication systems, exhaust systems, cooling systems, cylinder removal and replacement, compression checks, and valve adjustments. The specific topics addressed include Aircraft Engines, Engine Fuel and Fuel Metering Systems, Induction and Exhaust Systems, Engine Ignition and Electrical Systems, Engine Starting Systems, Lubrication and Cooling Systems, Propellers, Engine Removal and Replacement, Engine Fire Protection Systems, Engine Maintenance and Operation, and Light-Sport Aircraft Engines.
TheInspection Authorization Test Prep provides Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) with all the information needed to pass the FAA's exam for inspection authorization, and helps candidates become familiar with the privileges and limitations of the highest level of maintenance certification. This book is an important reference source for all AMTs seeking to add Inspection Authorization (IA) to his or her qualifications, as well as AMT schools preparing students for the IA test. All Inspection Authorization candidates must take and pass the FAA’s IA Knowledge Exam. The IA exam remains a "closed test”--the exact database of questions is not available to the public--which makes the IA Test Prep a great way to prepare for it. The IA exam differs from other FAA exams in that questions do not refer to a specific figure. Instead, applicants must learn to glean the information they need from the FAA Supplement (CT-8080-8) made available for use during the test. The nearly 500 sample questions typify those that candidates are likely to encounter, and train readers in the use of the available documents. Answer choices are supported with explanations, with FAA references identified for further study. This test prep also provides details on what applicants need to know about the certification process, insight into the function of an IA, and excerpts of regulations, advisory circulars, airworthiness directives, type certificate data sheets, FAA orders and aircraft specifications. Resources such as pertinent excerpts from these FAA documents and more are reprinted in this study guide; additionally, readers can access additional study material for this book at a special "Reader Resources" page at the ASA website. The IA Test Prep conveniently compiles the reference materials necessary to prepare for this exam into one volume, for an organized study program that AMT schools, instructors, and individuals alike can use to streamline their studies.
