spend the money go take it
Good for learning the basics and rules & regs to 411 & 413
I learned a lot of new information. It was definitely a good seminar.
need to attend
You will be ready to do pitot static/transponder test after this class
had a absolutely great time the instructors were very educational
Great info, good tips and tools used throughout industry.
In class provide a comprehensive knowledge of requirements & process for pitot-static testing including transponders, 91.411 and 91.413
worth my time & will continue to send my staff to AEA seminars
Good 2 day class packed full of crash course & refresh
A must for everyone to do!
Very informative, brings you up to speed with everything you should need to know to start your journey.
Great class to attend as a refresher or beginner
Good class to teach basics for Pitot Static theory and testing.
IT IS A VERY GOOD CLASS, WHETHER YOU ARE NEW TO AVIONICS AND AVIATION, OR AS A REFRESHER COURSE FOR THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN IN AVIONICS FOR A LONG TIME, OR ARE JUST RETURNING TO THE FIELD.
I would tell them that the class was well worth the time and money.
Whether you're new to the field or an old veteran, there's something to gain.
Other Upcoming Courses
This weeklong course provides an interactive environment to learn, understand and implement the regulations that govern repair station design and operations.
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.
This course is designed for technicians who have completed the AEA’s Basic wiring course and /or have a couple of years of basic avionics installation practice, familiar with basic soldering skills and are looking for experience in LRU bench testing and avionics trouble shooting. Bench testing Nav, VHF Com and transponders will be the focus of study. Technicians will fabricate a general-purpose test panel that they will use in the course. Attendees will keep their fabricated test panel at course completion.
This course is designed for technicians who have completed the AEA’s Bench Basics 101 course and/or have a couple years of basic avionics installation practice and are looking for experience in Avionics Flight line testing, LRU bench testing and Aircraft trouble shooting. VOR, Localizer, Glideslope, Marker Beacon and VHF Comms will be the focus of study.
This course is designed for technicians who have completed the AEA’s Bench Basics 101 and/or have a couple of years of basic avionics installation practice and are looking for experience in transponder LRU bench testing, transponder flight line testing and aircraft trouble shooting. ADS-B transponders systems will be the focus of study.
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 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.

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.
