The material covered includes the details necessary for the Federal Aviation Administration certification of Airframe and Powerplants Technicians. Aircraft Powerplants includes all types reciprocating piston, propeller systems and turbine engines used for propulsion of aircraft. Many technological changes have taken place with regard to the electronics and engine control systems, especially in reciprocating ignition systems, turbine engines material and control systems. The best strength of this text is that it is used widely by many schools and they are likely to keep using the text as long as it is kept up-to-date in content and presentation. Includes an Instructor's Manual that parallels the text. It provides fill-in-the-blank questions that identify key terms, demonstrates applications of mathematical relationships and validates learning progress by offering multiple-choice questions.Key Features:Modern electronics and engine control systems updated for aircraft developed over the past decade Figures updated and modernized throughout, 8 page color insert planned Gas Turbine chapter divided into two chapters for better understanding.
