Avotek Releases the Aviation Mechanic ACS Book Series

Finally! An entire set of Aviation Mechanic Airman Certification Standards (ACS) textbooks you can teach from. This series is arranged/organized by the FAA ACS subjects and covers everything. We used the 67 pages of the ACS as a roadmap to create more than 2,100 pages of General, Airframe, and Powerplant material.

As background, the FAA made a huge step forward with the new Part 147 in modernizing the training requirements. We created a new book series that is specifically tailored to work with the new requirements.

Ease your workload and use books that directly support the ACS—books that are ACS Good-to-Go!

Avotek-Online releases new course: Aircraft Fuel Systems

Aircraft fuel systems started with gravity systems that had only four parts. Now we have complex turbine engine systems with three types of pumps, several types of filters, a crossfeed system, pressure return lines, bottom pressure refueling with digital readouts, and all going into, or out of, several tanks at the same time.

Need an introduction to the basics of aircraft fuels, fuel system types, the components in the fuel system, and the basics of maintenance and inspection of the aircraft fuel systems? Get it with Avotek-Online’s newest course, Aircraft Fuel Systems.

With a total run time of 48 minutes, this program is presented in three lessons; Aircraft Fuel Basics, System Types and Components, and Inspection and Maintenance. Purchase Aircraft Fuel Systems on the here.

Avotek Improves Flight Safety with Risk Management for Aviation Maintenance Technicians

Risk Management for Aviation Maintenance Technicians is Avotek’s newest publication for improving flight safety by means of risk management.

Air travel is very safe, but more can be done to make it even more so. A key way to do this is to manage risk. David Jones explains risk management in the aircraft maintenance environment in a language and format for the AMT student. With the introduction of risk management elements to the ACS, it is critical that this information is available to candidates for certification.

This eight-chapter title contains photos and illustrations. It is available as a softcover book or as a web-based or downloadable eBook. Purchase Risk Management for Aviation Maintenance Technicians here!

Avotek-Online Releases New Airframe Fire Protection Systems Course

Avotek-Online has released Airframe Fire Protection Systems, an online course that introduces students to the systems responsible for small and large aircraft fire protection and extinguishing.

Because fire is one of the most dangerous threats to an aircraft, the potential fire zones of larger aircraft may be protected by fire protection and extinguishing systems. This program introduces the student to these systems as they may appear on both large and small aircraft. It examines several types of detection systems, the extinguishing agents commonly used, and the various delivery systems for these agents.

Airframe Fire Protection Systems runs for 44 minutes and is presented in two lessons:

  • Fire Detection Systems
  • Fire Extinguishing Systems

Airframe Fire Protection Systems is your next step toward state-of-the-art aviation maintenance training technology. Enroll in the course today!

Aircraft Nondestructive Testing blasts away old NDT resources

Aircraft Nondestructive Testing takes a deep dive with a modern take on nondestructive testing (NDT) to maintain aircraft and extend an aircraft’s useful life even more. This book explores many types of NDT that are commonly used in the aviation industry. You can see the physical, chemical, and electrical concepts that are applied and how they are used to help the technician “see” the defect without having to destroy the part in the process.

With 215 pages, illustrations, photos, glossary, and an index this publication remains an easily consumable resource for aviation maintenance training students or as a training tool for repair stations. Aircraft Nondestructive Testing is an alternative to NDT books that have been the standard for decades. Don’t settle for outdated information.
