Overview


Dale Crane's textbook series provides the most complete, up-to-date foundation for Aircraft & Powerplant (A&P) students and educators. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 course requirements and includes all of the aeronautical knowledge required for the FAA Knowledge Exams for AMTs (aircraft maintenance technicians). They are written and designed for at-home, classroom, or university level training. Powerplant is the final section of the FAA's required curriculum for AMTs, and covers all Part 147 course aspects of aircraft powerplant construction theory, maintenance and inspection -- that is, the engines and their related and connected systems. Detailing the technical maintenance of turbine and reciprocating engines, this book covers the final section of the FAA’s required curriculum. Theory and construction of these engines are discussed, along with propellers, development of aircraft powerplants, and powerplant auxiliary systems.

Each comprehensive textbook in the AMT Series includes full-color charts, tables, illustrations and photographs throughout, in addition to an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. This series was created to set the pace for aircraft maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market. A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of Study Question sections, with Answer keys printed at the end of each chapter. These can be used for evaluation by an instructor or for self-testing. Therefore the AMTS textbooks are all-inclusive; no separate, inconvenient workbook is needed by the student or instructor.
