The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook-Powerplant Volume 1 (FAA-H-8083-32) is one of a series of three handbooks for persons preparing for certification as a powerplant mechanic. It is intended that this handbook provide the basic information on principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in the subject matter areas relating to the powerplant rating. It is designed to aid students enrolled in a formal course of instruction, as well as the individual who is studying on his or her own. Since the knowledge requirements for the airframe and powerplant ratings closely parallel each other in some subject areas, the chapters which discuss fire protection systems and electrical systems contain some material which is also duplicated in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook-Airframe (FAA-H-8083-31). This handbook contains an explanation of the units that make up each of the systems that bring fuel, air, and ignition together in an aircraft engine for combustion.

This handbook contains an explanation of the units that make up each of the systems that bring fuel, air, and ignition together in an aircraft engine for combustion. It also contains information on engine construction features, lubrication systems, exhaust systems, cooling systems, cylinder removal and replacement, compression checks, and valve adjustments. Because there are so many different types of aircraft in use today, it is reasonable to expect that differences exist in airframe components and systems. To avoid undue repetition, the practice of using representative systems and units is carried out throughout the handbook. Subject matter treatment is from a generalized point of view and should be supplemented by reference to manufacturer's manuals or other textbooks if more detail is desired. This handbook is not intended to replace, substitute for, or supersede official regulations or the manufacturer's instructions.

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 airframe of an aircraft: how it is built, maintained, and repaired. It covers subjects such as airframe construction features, assembly and rigging, fabric covering, structural repairs, and aircraft welding. The specific topics addressed include Aircraft Instrument Systems, Communication and Navigation, Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems, Aircraft Landing Gear Systems, Aircraft Fuel System, Ice and Rain Protection, Cabin Environmental Control Systems, and Fire Protection Systems.

The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook--General is designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA Knowledge and Practical Exams for obtaining an FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certificate with airframe or powerplant ratings, or both (also called an A&P license). This volume was developed as one in a series of handbooks for this purpose; additionally, it is an invaluable reference guide for already-certificated technicians and those holding the Inspection Authorization (IA) rating who wish to improve their knowledge. This FAA handbook discusses the principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in subject matter areas common to the airframe and powerplant ratings: safety, ground operations an servicing, regulations, maintenance forms, records and publications, mathematics, aircraft drawings, physics, weight and balance, aircraft materials, hardware and processes, cleaning and corrosion control, fluid lines and fittings, inspection concepts and techniques, hand tools and measuring devices, electricity an electronics, inspection, mechanic privileges and limitations, and human factors. Also discussed are the ways that successful AMTs incorporate into their daily tasks the knowledge and awareness of ethics and professionalism. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs, with a comprehensive glossary and index.
