EASA legislation (again it is a course aimed at FAA Part 145s)
It is a good general overview of RVSM
Very good class! I recommend it to anyone wanting to broaden or brush up on their knowledge.
AEA classes are some of the best, most informative classes I've had the pleasure of taking.
Be prepared for not taking/documentation
A must attend training class to provide work class IFR 6000 ADS-B/XPNDR Testing
Great for beginners to refresher for knowledgeable users
A very interactive course, best for those with a good basic understanding of how transponder and ADS-B systems function.
A must have course for anyone performing ADS-B Installation or testing!
If you want to know how to use the IFR 6000 attend this class.
We worth it
I highly recommend that remaining techs be sent to this course
professional really don't change a thing
Lots of information. Good to hear how other shops do things.
Other Upcoming Courses
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
This course is designed for currently employed repair station personnel and installers of ADS-B systems. Approximately 7% of all general aviation ADS-B installations are non-compliant based on the FAA’s ADS-B Performance Monitoring System. This course focuses on the proper configuration and testing of ADS-B installations to ensure your installation meets the performance requirements and regulations. Also included are troubleshooting tips and tricks that will help you resolve the common problems found in ADS-B installations.
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.
Understanding the regulations of the repair station is only part of the equation. Like pieces of a puzzle, each regulation is needed to fit together in order to fully view the repair station’s requirements. Understanding the regulatory relationship between the business (part 145); the maintenance it performs (part 43); the parts it uses (part 21); as well as the needs of customers (part 91) are essential to provide regulatory compliant services in aviation maintenance. This session will cover the basics of the maintenance and modification regulations but more importantly, it focuses on their integrated relationship with the business.
This course focuses on the basics of internal auditing and the development of an internal audit program, providing the tools and methods necessary to meet the international regulatory needs as well as the continuous improvement of the repair station.
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
The Basic Pitot-Static & Transponder course is designed for entry-level avionics technicians or those looking for basic training on pitot-static & aircraft transponder systems. This two-day course covers the history and theory of operation of pitot-static instruments and transponders, as well as system set-up, hands-on testing, and the troubleshooting skills necessary to perform FAR 91.411 and 91.413 checks.
This course is targeted for the home builder or avionics technician who wants to learn about performing an avionics installation in an experimental aircraft. The class focuses on the Garmin G3X Touch system, and a simplified example harness is constructed as part of the hands-on portion of the class. While the G3X Touch system is the primary focus, the wiring principles and general guidance can be applied to any experimental avionics system. From the do-it-yourselfer to the avionics shop looking to carve out a niche, this class has something for everyone.
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
This 4-hour course will give aviation project managers, technicians, and support personnel a key advantage in their careers. This class will help strengthen and leverage the essential skills necessary for executing a successful project plan.
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
This course is designed for avionics technicians or apprentices who want to learn more about aircraft instrument systems and better understand their operation, installation considerations, and maintenance to become more effective troubleshooters. From simple mechanical gauges to complex electrical and electronic systems, this course covers nearly every instrument system in an aircraft.
This course is designed for technicians who have experience with avionics installation practices and are looking for more training integrating common general aviation installations. Technicians will learn how to plan, install, interface, configure and check out an installation consisting of a Garmin GTN 650 touch screen nav/com/GPS, Garmin GTX 345 transponder and dual Garmin GI 275 primary flight display.
Attendees will learn the proper methods for conducting pitot-static and transponder tests and inspections. This full-day course offers hands-on training, including a regulatory review and an explanation of the proper administrative procedures for completing these critical certifications. With so many questions surrounding ADS-B this course will provide the answers and what you need to know.
This weeklong course provides an interactive environment to learn, understand and implement the regulations that govern repair station design and operations.
