Now in hard cover and full color: Dale Crane's AMT Series is the essential resource to pass the FAA Knowledge Exams for Aviation Maintenance Technicians.

AMTs Airframe, Volume 1: Structures is the second book of Dale Crane's AMT Series, the first of two volumes. These textbooks were created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market.

Airframe: Structures details the subjects associated with aircraft structures including aerodynamics, and hydraulics and pneumatic systems as they relate to the landing gear. Both metallic and nonmetallic structures as well as assembly and rigging are covered in this volume. This volume is in its Third Edition and has been updated to today’s practices and procedures, now featuring full-color illustrations throughout.

Dale Crane's textbooks consist of the most complete and up-to-date material for A&P training. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 requirements and Subject Matter Knowledge Codes from the FAA mechanics knowledge tests. They are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. These comprehensive textbooks include colored charts, tables and illustrations throughout, in addition to an extensive glossary, index, and career information.

A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of Study Question sections (with Answer keys at the end of each chapter), which can be used for evaluation by an instructor or for self-testing. ASA's mechanic textbooks are all-inclusive — no separate, inconvenient workbook is needed by the student or instructor. Soft cover, 536 pages, color illustration throughout, indexed.
