Synopsis:
The only text available that covers FAR part 121 aircraft. A system-by-system approach to understanding jet transports. Necessary for A&P students and licensed technicians wanting to work on large aircraft. The 3rd edition now includes Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A380. Transport aircraft systems have undergone many changes in the rapidly changing electronic age, and Transport Category Aircraft Systems helps make sense of them. It introduces the reader to aircraft systems through in-depth explanations and detailed illustrations. Designed for readers who have basic knowledge of aeronautical terminology and aircraft systems, Transport Category Aircraft Systems provides simple and self contained description and familiarization of large transport category aircraft and their on-board systems from electrical power systems to oxygen systems, to communication systems, and beyond.

Airplane rigging

Editor:  Russo, David.
Call number:  TL671.5.R969

Synopsis:

Airplane rigging has a large influence on aircraft performance and is often the most easily changed. This manual on airplane rigging continues on where most manuals and instructions leave off, and provides some answers to the many questions that arise when building or rigging an airplane.
The factors driving the various rigging geometries are discussed, and methods and tools of measurement are illustrated for many different situations and airplane configurations.
For the homebuilder, the techniques, tools, and procedures given in this book may be used both during and after the construction process. This information is intended to supplement the kit or plans for an aircraft. This manual also discusses experimenting with the rigging of an airplane to increase performance and controllability in a particular phase of flight.
The maintenance technician of certificated aircraft will find the tools and techniques provided here to be useful in daily shop operations. Troubleshooting rigging problems can be a frustrating and drawn out process. Older aircraft often lack comprehensive maintenance data and their overall structural designs and hardware are no longer commonly used in aircraft construction. This manual discusses many of those factors.
For the pilot, this manual gives insight to the rigging factors driven by design, and provides the language to describe the behaivior of the aircraft in unambiguous terms to the mechanic.

Synopsis:

Aircraft Fluid Power Systems takes a comprehensive look at hydraulic and pneumatic systems on today’s aircraft. Its seventeen chapters cover the basics, fluid lines and fittings, hydraulic system components, valves, tires, tubes, and wheels, aircraft brakes and anti-skid brake control systems, structures that support aircraft on the ground, aircraft retraction systems, nose wheel steering systems, and skis and floats. There is also information on specific aircraft hydraulics such as Boeing 727 and 757, the Cessna Citation, Gates Learjet 25, and the Canadair 601.
As an added bonus, there are appendices containing basic symbols, maintenance of alclad floats, conversion and installation of skis, rigging of skis as well as a complete glossary of hydraulic and related terms.
The author is a respected instructor at the worlds largest aviation university. This book reflects his more than 30 years of experience in the aviation industry.
