Avionic Systems Engineering Crash Course

Avionic Systems Engineering Crash Course covers a comprehensive training of theories, technical, certification requirements, and the technologies applied in the today and future avionic systems. By taking this training course, you will fully understand all the systems involved in the avionic technology, plus you will be introduced to DO-178C and DO-254.

What is Avionics?

Avionics refer to the electronic systems applied in aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionic systems contain communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and other systems placed in aircraft to conduct individual functions. The word of avionics is a portmanteau of the terms aviation and electronics.
