VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
As today’s modern airplanes become much more technologically advanced, so must the professionals that maintain them. The advanced avionics and instrumentation systems used in these aircraft rely on various forms of digital databus communication. Understanding digital databus theory is becoming more and more important for avionics technicians, and even A&P mechanics, to effectively test and troubleshoot these highly advanced aircraft systems.
Presented by: Azimuth Aerospace Solutions LLC - Bio
- Digital Databus Theory and Analysis explores several formats of digital data transfer protocols commonly used in aviation RS-232, RS-422, ARINC 429, and an introduction to the MIL-STD-1553 databus.
- Learn integration and wiring considerations for each of these databuses in aircraft installations.
- ARINC 429 word and bit structure
- How to use both a handheld and PC-based databus reader
- Students will be able to read the data being transmitted on a digital databus and interpret the data into useful information.
- This course will be presented live online.
- After registering, attendees will be emailed the information needed to connect.
- Attendees will be emailed the course materials in digital format.
- Attendees are required to connect with a web camera.
This class is helpful for those with limited knowledge or no experience with data buses to acquire a good general overview of databuses and their use in aviation. The primary audience the course would appeal to is technicians who want to move past installs and better understand the systems they are working on. For my level of experience, I found it helpful to see how to present this knowledge, and I would recommend my junior technicians take it
Brush up on binary code ahead of time, lol! Lot of math, but it ties in well with understanding the data usage in actual troubleshooting.
Very informative class that is presented in an approachable manner.
It is definitely a good course to start troubleshooting communications between airborne equipments.
TAKE THE COURSE, RIGHT NOW...!
Take this class asap
Great way to build an understanding of Databus systems.
William always knows his subject, but his explanations and examples for the databuses and the decoding were exceptional.
Great overview of data bus systems with practical application.
Great basics for someone just starting to learn.
Explanation of databus protocols, how to convert different number systems, how to operate databus analyzer tool
Course provides good insight into the digital data we're all having to deal with.
A course beneficial for any avionics technician, that should be taken for a deep dive into digital databus language
Good course helps with understanding Data Bus Theory
If you are curious about data buses and troubleshoot modern aircraft for a living, you should definitely take this class.
id say its well worth the time and the information is priceless
Great, easy to understand course, gave a good understanding of what the different data transfer types really entails. I have a better understanding of why different data wiring are used between equipment now!
Taking this course is WAY better than reading a textbook that will put you to sleep. I strongly recommend it.
Great class for general knowledge of the different databus protocols, especially really understanding 429.
a must have for every avionics tech and installer!
Expect good information but heavy on math and light on real world application
The more you know, the easier troubleshooting gets. Being that the ARINC 429 is communicating with all of your avionics, this course is providing the ground work for you to essentially diagnose any fault in any system.
This course provides detailed information n how to interpret raw 429 Data
Good to troubleshoot & learn in depth avionics
Be sure to have a small amount of familiarity with DD
Great in-depth training for someone who wants to understand better the systems we work with every day.
A fantastic deep dive on the "gibberish" I see on the GTN 429 diagnostics. I can speak the language now.
Great - Will recommend my other employees to attend.
This knowledge is perfect for really expanding capabilities into avionics
Great class, I learned an incredible amount about databus and how computers communicate.
This class was intimidating, but it shouldn't have been. William made everything easy to understand.
Great course. Worth the time.

Excellent primer to material toward a working understanding to otherwise complicated material.
Excellent class, worth taking.
Other Upcoming Courses
This weeklong course provides an interactive environment to learn, understand and implement the regulations that govern repair station design and operations.
The Aircraft Electronics Technician (AET) Prep Course is a hybrid class for aviation technicians who want to earn their NCATT AET certification. Students who register in advance will have access to online modules to self-study the AET coursework before attending the live class at AEA. The online modules take approximately two weeks to complete. Students will attend a one-day review session in person and take the AET certification exam at AEA headquarters in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. ($175 value for exam is included in your course registration.)Note: Upon registration, instructions to access the AET Prep online modules will be emailed to the attendee.
The Basic Wiring & Avionics Installation course is designed for certificated repairmen, new avionics technicians, aviation maintenance technicians and recent graduates interested in improving or acquiring the skills necessary to perform avionics installations. This three-day seminar employs in-depth theory and hands-on lab exercises to immerse the attendee in the best practices used to plan, manage, and install a general aviation avionics panel. Installation lab includes: Avidyne IFD540 FMS/GPS Navigator, Garmin G5 Electronic Flight Instrument & GAD 29 ARINC 429 data bus module, PS Engineering PMA8000BT Audio Panel and Trans-Cal SSD120-35C-RS-232 Altitude Encoder
