The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook: General handbook replaces AC 65-9A and reflects current operating procedures, regulations, and equipment. Developed as the first of a series of three handbooks for persons preparing for mechanic certification with airframe or powerplant ratings, those seeking an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Certificate, also called an A&P license. An effective text for both students and instructors, this handbook will also serve as an invaluable reference guide for current technicians who wish to improve their knowledge. This edition contains information on mathematics, aircraft drawings, weight and balance, aircraft materials, processes and tools, physics, electricity, inspection, ground operations, and FAA regulations governing the certification and work of maintenance technicians. Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook: General has a section addressing how successful AMTs incorporate knowledge and awareness of ethics, professionalism, and human factors in the field. Includes colored charts, tables, full-color illustrations and photographs throughout, and an extensive glossary and index. Softback, 656 pages.
