AET 126 Electronics/Instruments

Lecture: 1 Lab: 2 Clinic: 0 Credits: 2
This course introduces students to the study of theory and application of electronic flight instruments and avionics systems as found in modern aircraft. Topics include the markings and operation of gyroscopic, temperature, direction, and pitot/static operated instruments systems. Upon completion, students should be able to perform pitot/static checks, bench test instruments and then perform tests on the entire system.

Pre-requisite(s): AET 110 .
Course is typically offered in Spring.
Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
At successful completion of the course, the student should be able to do the following:

  1. Perform a leak test on the pitot/static system first doing a bench test of a static instrument and then performing a test on the entire system using the Laversab 6300 in accordance with FAR part 43 appendix E.
  2. Draw, identify and label the static/pitot and vacuum system diagramming the basic 6-pack configuration as found in a standard aircraft using a current maintenance manual as a guide.
  3. Identify and draw limitation markings on flight and engine instruments using the pilot operating hand book which will identify a set of parameters for a given aircraft model.
