The Aviation Maintenance Technician: Powerplant is the third book of Dale Crane's Aviation Maintenance Technician Series created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance books on the market. Powerplant details the technical maintenance of turbine and reciprocating engines, covering the final section of the FAA's required curriculum. Theory and construction of aircraft engines are discussed along with propellers, development of aircraft powerplants, and powerplant auxiliary systems. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 requirements and Learning Statement Codes from the FAA mechanics knowledge tests. The books are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. These comprehensive textbooks include explanatory charts, tables and illustrations along with an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. Margin definitions and notes highlight important facts on each page of text.
A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of Study Question sections placed throughout, with Answer keys printed at the end of each chapter. These can be used for evaluation by an instructor or for self-testing. ASA's mechanic textbooks are all-inclusive so no separate, inconvenient workbook is needed by the student or instructor.
