Aircraft Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems Joins Avotek-Online’s Aircraft System Maintenance Category

Avotek is happy to announce the release of another online learning program in our Aircraft System Maintenance category. Aircraft Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems is the second release in this category and joins the Aircraft Water and Waste Systems material that was introduced in November.

This course includes an introduction to hydraulic and pneumatic systems used on aircraft. The material covers theory, components, operation, and basic maintenance tasks. As with our other courses in this series, the material covers the curriculum requirements for the new Airman Certification Standards, and relates well to either the Avotek AMT Series Textbooks, or the Federal Aviation Administration AMT Handbook series.

Increase AMT student engagement with Avotek-Online’s new online course

Avotek-Online has released a new online course to cover the Aircraft Water and Waste Systems material now required by the ACS. This course complements Avotek’s recently released Aircraft Water and Waste Systems booklet and is the first offering in a group of courses that go in the Aircraft System Maintenance category/series on our Avotek-Online page.

This online experience is an excellent way to increase student engagement and learning by having students complete the theory portion of the subject area at home but have their questions answered and work on the skills and problem solving during in-person class time. Often referred to as “flipping the classroom,” this technique can be a very effective way to present AMT material.

Avotek-Online Releases Introduction to Aircraft Maintenance Series

Avotek is happy to announce a new category of online learning products. Introduction to Aircraft Maintenance is a series of online courses that cover the General section of the Mechanic exam. These courses are designed as a companion to either the Avotek or the FAA textbook series.

The material has been carefully extracted and presents the most important information associated with each subject area. To help students gain an understanding of the theory and practice being presented, each program provides a narrated commentary, supplemented by more images than the textbook. These programs can be used to replace or augment the lecture associated with the subject area.

Avotek-Online will be releasing additional topics throughout the year. All courses are available at www.Avotek-Online.com. You can see all the titles in this category by using the Category dropdown menu at the top left of the page.

Avotek-Online Helps AMT Schools Who Want to Offer Online Classes

Avotek is doing its part to help schools through this change in direction for instruction. Last year we launched Avotek-Online and went live with 20 courses to help you present AMT material to your students. Based on the latest ATEC survey, nearly three out of four AMT schools are working to move toward online learning wherever possible and we are happy to offer some relief.

These courses are available in different combinations to suit your needs. You may purchase access to each subject individually, according to the subject area in Part 147 you are presenting. This option gives you the flexibility to match the material to your curriculum. These single subject courses can be used as the foundation for instruction or can meet FAA requirements for making available material that has been missed. The flexibility is yours. For those of you preparing students (or maybe yourself) for the AET exam, the Fundamentals of Aircraft Electronics course is available in two large packages.

Click here to see the listing of courses available at this time.

These courses can be found at https://avotek-online.com/. At that address you will also find a free sample course to let you see how the content is presented. Also, by clicking on a course you are interested in you will be able to see the subjects covered and the run-time of video presentations.

In addition to these online courses, Avotek has uploaded samples from five of the courses to YouTube. These can be found by entering Avotek Training in the YouTube search bar.

To help schools take advantage of this resource we are offering special enterprise pricing based on the number of students you will be enrolling in each course. Contact Mike Leo to discuss how you can get special pricing.1.800.828.6835 or email at sales@avotek.com.

Avotek-Online and AEA Pair up to Save you Money on AET Test Prep

April 1, 2020: Last year, Avotek premiered an online study program for aviation technicians and students preparing to take the Aircraft Electronics Technician (AET) certification exam. This program is a companion to Avotek’s popular Fundamentals of Aircraft Electronics textbook and is delivered in two parts:

This year we have been working hard to cement our training partnership with AEA and offer a special program designed to save you money. The online program now is available using a link from the AEA website, specifically in the members-only area. Start with http://aea.net/training/avotek/ and then click on the box for the coupon code and you will be directed to the members-only portion of the website. Use the coupon code when you enroll in the course and get the lowest price available.

The key advantage to the Avotek-Online AET program is the freedom it gives the user. Traditional teaching forces a fixed schedule on the student, and maybe that just doesn’t work with your day. Avotek-Online allows you to learn and practice for the AET exam whenever and wherever you want. It also allows you to determine how much time you spend on each subject. There are no limitations to when and how much the user can learn. With Avotek-Online, you are in full control.

If you have questions regarding any of our new or existing products, our sales team would be more than happy to help you. Call us at 1.800.828.6835 or email us at sales@avotek.com.
