Pilot license candidates studying for the Instrument Rating, Instrument Flight Instruction, and Foreign Pilot Knowledge Exams will find samples of every question in the Federal Aviation Administration exam database along with their answers and explanations, in this guide. The more than 900 questions from these exams are arranged by subject category, with each section prefaced by text introducing the subject matter and accompanied by specific study material. Each question is followed by the answer, an explanation of the answer, and a Learning Statement Code for further study in FAA materials. Updates are provided to account for FAA test-question changes throughout the publication year via the ASA website or e-mail. Meteorology, flight and navigational instruments, instrument flight rules and procedures, arrivals and approaches, and review computations are among the subjects covered. Includes softcover book and computer testing supplement.
The Fast Track series is designed to prepare applicants who are seeking Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications for the full range of material on each test of the series. This test guide offers current test questions, answers, detailed explanations, illustrations, and oral and practical study outlines to the FAA's Powerplant Knowledge Exam. The series is designed in a "fast-track" format for increased comprehension and retention of the studied materials. This guide also lists and identifies all the FAA Learning Statement Codes (LSC) that the FAA uses on their Knowledge Test Reports, which are useful for test takers to find out what their weak areas are if they missed any questions on their FAA exams, and focus further study on those areas. Featuring all the questions from the FAA Knowledge Exam's "Powerplant" section for Aviation Maintenance Technicians, this new edition answers and explains the toughest questions on the FAA exams.
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.
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.
