As many of you have read in my posts before I am training to be an aircraft and avionics technician.
I have completed my general testing and now have completed my powerplant final with a grade of 94 and an over all gpa of 97.80. I began airframe electrical today and will be taking airframe classes for the next 20 weeks. If anyone has any questions on powerplant, which includes general aviation, turbo props, turbo fans and turbo jets in general then I invite you to ask away. I am studying for my FAA written and Orals and practicals as we speak and will answer what I can, and can get answers to what I don't know if need be.

I have copies of the entire Federal Aviation Regs, AC 4313, 8083 for general, powerplant, and now airframe as well. I also have Aircraft electrical and many other reference books I can refer too. I learn faster actually explaining the way things work to others, and I will be paying close attention to this post over the next few weeks as I study. Any questions you have I will try to answer, and if I don't know the answer I have 8 instructors that can help me find the answer. I will try my best to answer it for you.

So ask away my friends

S&F for sharing.

When will the industry discover that wings should flap like a bird?

Sorry, could not resist.

Enjoy the flight line. Just remember, the IFF doesn't work in the "OFFicial" mode.

Hey welcome to the community.

I'm a UH60 mechanic in the US Army. I'm also a crew chief.

A & P is a little down the line for me, right now its about promotion boards and training soldiers.

Thank.you very much. Actually im looking at working at an mro until I get avionics complete. Most of the students think that avionics is a waste of time and money but from what I am seeing most bigger companies are looking for people who already have some training in it. Keep trying to tell them but they are young dumb and full of it. Lol. Cant wait to get into the industry. This has been a dream of mine since I was little.:

Why are DC systems predominately 28V? I've never had a satisfactory answer to this question...

Aircraft batteries generally are 28v. So as a backup systems rely on 28v.

That must be a very responsible job... no time or place for screw ups, one lose or wrong bolt and a plane can go down.

It will also be a job with constant new tec/updates to learn so you will be learning the rest of your carreer. Would you be interested to work on the worlds most dangerous workfloor? On a carrier..?

Yes this is my understanding as well. Most aircraft use 28 volt batteries. So naturally they will have a 28 volt system. Aircraft alternators and generators produce 400 hertz at 28 volts because of the extreme electrical loads that are running the craft.
