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 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 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.
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, L3Harris Technologies Lynx NGT-9000 Transponder/ADS-B Transceiver, 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.
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.
This course is designed for technicians who have completed AEA’s Basic Wiring & Avionics Installation Course and/or have a couple years of basic avionics installation practice and are looking for more experience 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.
