The Aviation Maintenance Technician: Powerplant is the third book of Dale Crane's AMT Series, textbooks that were created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market. Powerplant is now in its third edition and has been updated to today’s practices and procedures, featuring full-color illustrations throughout with new information on DC generator and alternator system inspection, maintenance, and troubleshooting. The Technical Editor for this Third Edition is Jerry Lee Foulk (LeTourneau University).
Powerplant details the technical maintenance of turbine and reciprocating engines, covering the final section of the FAA’s required curriculum. Theory and construction of aircraft engines are discussed along with propellers, development of aircraft powerplants, and powerplant auxiliary systems.
Dale Crane's textbooks consist of the most complete and up-to-date material for A&P training. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 requirements and Learning Statement Codes from the FAA mechanics knowledge tests. The books are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. These comprehensive textbooks include explanatory charts, tables and illustrations along with an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. Margin definitions and notes highlight important facts on each page of text.
A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of study question sections placed throughout, with answer keys printed at the end of each chapter. These can be used for evaluation by an instructor or for self-testing. ASA's mechanic textbooks are all-inclusive—no separate, inconvenient workbook is needed by the student or instructor.
