Aircraft Instruments and Integrated Systems provides a wealth of unique information covering all aspects of operating principles and constructional features of the instrumentation and integrated systems required for the flight handling and navigation of aircraft, and also for the performance monitoring of their relevant powerplants.
The text is liberally illustrated with schematic diagrams, colour and black and white photographs and a number of tables and appendices for easy reference. All the instruments and systems detailed are representative of those installed in a range of civil aircraft types currently in service. The operating principles of digital computer techniques and electronic displays are emphasised. Essay-type exercises and multi-choice questions relevant to subjects covered by each chapter, will enable readers to conduct self-tests.
This volume provides information on the operating principles and constructional features of the instruments and integrated systems required for flight handling and navigation of aircraft. It also covers the performance monitoring of their relevant power plants. All instruments and systems detailed are representative of those installed in a range of civil aircraft currently in service. The author's long involvement with instruments and associated systems has made it possible to include some aspects rarely found in books of this nature. It updates and replaces the author's Longman titles "Aircraft Instruments" and "Microelectronics in Aircraft Systems".
There are schematic diagrams and photographs, many in full colour, with tables and appendices help student reference and the book is written at both basic and intermediate levels with a progressive arrangement of its subject matter making it ideal as a reference volume for aviation training programmes. Essay type exercises and multiple choice questions enable readers to conduct self tests. The book is aimed at HNC / HND level and can also be used as reference reading for professional flight crews. It is designed for those on aircraft maintenance engineer licence courses.
This book is an absolute must have for anyone looking to, or currently studying for LAE status. The book is highly informative and serves as an accurate reference for a vast majority of instruments. Chapters are laid out in a logical manner and self study questions ensure that the student can accurately guage his progress. There are many extracts and diagrams from CMMs and a wide variety of vendors are covered including Honeywell, Rockwell Collins and Delco. The book takes the student from the basics of aircraft instruments, covers CRT theory and continues to build towards a thorough understanding of Instruments and Integrated systems.
