Aircraft Digital Electronic and Computer Systems
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after January 31, 2022
Aircraft Digital Electronic and Computer Systems is a thorough introduction to the principles and practice of aircraft digital electronic, avionic and computer systems.
New to this third edition, integrated modular avionics (IMA) provides an overview of networked avionics found in the latest generation of transport aircraft. Cabin systems covers cabin networks, intercommunication, and core systems. Aircraft information systems examines flight-deck operation aided by electronic flight bags (EFB) and includes a case study that highlights the importance of information systems, as well as the potential consequences of their failure. The new edition contains several hundred test questions, and its companion website, www.66web.co.uk, offers additional resource material.
With full coverage of Module 5 and avionics topics in Modules 11 and 13, this book is ideal for those studying towards licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status, both independently and part of an EASA Part-66 or FAR-147 approved course. It will also appeal to those taking City & Guilds, EDEXCEL National or Higher National Units or a First/Foundation Degree in an aerospace related discipline.
