A core reference for mechanics, aircraft owners, and pilots, this book compiles specifications from numerous reference books and government publications into one handy, toolbox-size reference guide. Revised to reflect current specifications, it provides mechanics with all the reference information critical to maintaining aircraft, including the most frequently used measurements, scales, charts, and diagrams.
Topics covered in detail include metal fabrication, corrosion control, nondestructive inspection, control systems, and oxygen-system servicing. This new edition features additional information on the latest techniques in the industry, including composite materials and aircraft batteries. The stay-flat spiral binding and tabbed format facilitate quick look-ups and make this a convenient and safe on-the-job reference book.
