Avionics Certification Training

Avionics Certification Training

There are two primary certifications in this field – power-plant mechanics and airframe mechanics. While these certifications aren’t necessarily required, most aspiring mechanics and technicians obtain one or both of them.

Airframe mechanics perform repairs and maintenance on the body and structure of an aircraft, excluding propellers, powerplants, and avionics instruments. The examination of the outside of an airplane for any structural weaknesses or damage and the repair of parts and panels of a plane are two components of the job.

An aircraft powerplant mechanic repairs and maintains engines, referred to as an aircraft power plant, which is made up of many components, such as cylinders, pistons, and fans, which help produce the energy needed to propel an aircraft. The power plant may be a jet engine or a combination of propellers and an engine.

Avionics are the electronic systems used on aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionic systems include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.

The typical location for avionic equipment is in the aircraft cockpit. This includes systems for:

  • Control
  • Monitoring
  • Communication
  • Navigation
  • Weather
  • Anti-collisions

Aircraft generally power their avionics using 14- or 28-volt DC electrical systems. More sophisticated aircraft use 400 Hz, 115 volts AC.

While generators are the main source of aircraft power, multiple supplemental sources on an aircraft are essential for redundancy. Consequently, aviation engineers have been developing a number of new technologies, including fuel cells, super capacitors and high-energy, high-power-density, lithium-ion battery systems.

It’s also paramount for avionics technicians who work within the various segments of the global aerospace industry to know the importance of staying up to date on new technologies, procedures and concepts on the horizon such as:

  • Robotic co-pilots
  • Fully autonomous aircraft
  • Neural sensing
  • Runway overrun alerting and awareness system (ROAAS)
  • Electric hybrid aircraft
