In this course, William Trapper delivers an excellent introductory course into aircraft equipment and instruments. Over two days you will learn about all 9 categories of instruments and you will not be bored doing so.
This class is very helpful. Especially for beginners.
This class was a great introduction and education on aviation instruments. Very informative and easy to keep up with.
Great opportunities for learn instruments.
This course would be useful for both inexperienced and experienced individuals alike. Topics covered are very informative and well presented.
This class is a must for entry to senior level instrument technicians as well as people who work and are interested on instruments and displays.
Great course and worth the time/money
Definitly 100% attend it.
This class is very informative for introductory technicians or mechanics and explains the purposes for most instruments in aircrafts.
Great instructor and awesome presentation of aircraft instruments!
Excellent introduction to instruments for entry level avionics technicians. Well presented with coverage of all required background to be able to troubleshoot most common instrument issues.
If you want to know how each instrument works INTERNALLY this class is for you.
Good introduction for theory of operations for avionics instruments.
Pay attention & retain as much as you can
Mr Tramper is a wealth of information and if he cannot answer your question he will find out how to.
New techs with limited knowledge could struggle. This is difficult to balance with a range of experience in the class.
If you dont know how to fly you may need to study a little more after class
As a pilot, I expected this class to be review. It was much deeper than what is common knowledge to pilots.
