Full Bulletin http://bulletin.andrews.edu/
Applied Science for Aerospace Technicians
Applies the sciences of mathematics and physics to the aerodynamics of flight, maintenance, weight and balance and various maintenance problems that the aircraft maintenance technician could encounter. Includes the study and use of drawings and basic ground operations.
Aircraft Basic Electricity
A study of the fundamental basics of electricity and electronics; including electrical diagrams, calculations, sources of electrical power, direct and alternating current, aircraft storage batteries, capacitance and inductance, binary code and the basics of solid state logic.
Federal Regulations, Publications, Forms and Records
Study of the federal regulations and manufacturer publications as they apply to aircraft design, maintenance, inspections, forms and records, and the certification and privileges/limitations of the aviation maintenance technicians.
Materials and Processes for Aircraft Structures
Includes hand and power tool usage, aircraft hardware and materials, precision measurements, corrosion control, non‑destructive testing, and fluid lines and fittings.
Aircraft Electrical Systems
Practical study of aircraft electrical systems, including installation practices, repair, troubleshooting, service, and inspections.
Powerplant Electrical Systems
A study of engine ignition and engine electrical systems (starter, generators, alternators, auxiliary electrical power units and their control circuits, engine instruments, and engine fire protection‑suppression systems).
An in‑depth study into the inspection, repair, checking, servicing and troubleshooting of the following aircraft systems: ice‑and‑rain detection, cabin atmosphere (pressurization, heating, cooling, and oxygen), position warning systems, navigation and communication systems, and aircraft instruments and their use in troubleshooting of aircraft systems.
Aircraft Fuels and Fuel Systems
A study of the various types and handling of fuels used in aircraft. Includes a study of aircraft fuel systems, fuel metering methods and the inspection, checking, servicing, troubleshooting, repair and overhaul of fuel systems and their components, and fire detection and protection.
Engine Fuel Metering Systems
A study of the engine side of the fuel systems (firewall forward). Includes an in‑depth study of fuel‑metering devices used on aircraft engines (carburetors, pressure carburetors, direct and continuous fuel‑injection systems). Service, maintenance, repair and troubleshooting of each different system type is covered in detail.
Maintenance: General, Airframe, or Power Plant Review
A review of all subjects from a selected curriculum. A minimum of five examinations per curriculum area is required. Prerequisites: All applicable curriculum subjects must have been completed.
Aircraft Hydraulic, Pneumatic, and Landing Gear Systems
Operation and maintenance of aircraft hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, landing‑gear systems, and the inspection, checking, servicing, troubleshooting, and repair of these systems and system components.
Aircraft Metal Structures
A study and application of the processes used in the fabrication and repair of aircraft metal structures. Welding theory and practice with emphasis on weld‑quality identification. Riveted, aircraft, aluminum, sheet‑metal structures including the fabrication and repair of such structures.
Aircraft Non‑metal Structures
A study of wood and fabric as used in the construction of aircraft and a study of the methods, tooling, inspection, processes, and repair of composite aircraft structures. Includes the application, identification, and functions of aircraft protective finishes.
Aircraft Assembly, Rigging and Inspections
Study of the nomenclature and design features of both fixed‑wing and rotor‑wing aircraft and the assembly, alignment of aircraft structures, and rigging and balancing of control system. A detailed inspection of the entire aircraft or rotorcraft is covered as it applies to the airframe 100‑hour and other required inspection.
Gas Turbine Engines
Principles and theory of jet‑engine propulsion, design, types of, and associated systems. Maintenance, overhaul, installation‑ removal, repair, trimming, and troubleshooting of turbine engines.
Aircraft Propellers and Engine Inspections
Theory and limited work on propellers, both wood and metal. Encompasses fixed, adjustable, controllable, feathering, reversible, and the control of the latter by mechanical, hydromatic, or electrical control systems. The inspection practice of performing the 100‑hour inspection on aircraft engines and propellers.
Reciprocating Engine Systems and Overhaul
A study of reciprocating engine theory, overhaul methods, and practices and the installation of reciprocating engines. Also includes a study of the following engine systems: exhaust, cooling, induction, and lubrication.
