Covering modern aircraft from Boeing and Airbus aircraft, as well as the latest in the corporate world, this book is extensive in nature. The second edition covers the latest airliner systems as well as popular light aircraft systems from Garmin and others.

A practical guide to troubleshooting and maintenance of advanced avionics equipment as typically found on transport category aircraft. This book begins with information common to a variety of avionics systems including an overview of manuals, wiring diagrams, schematics and power distribution systems. Common digital formats such as ARINC 429 and 629 are presented in detail along with related troubleshooting techniques. Complex avionics systems as typically found on Boeing and Airbus aircraft including integrated displays, autopilot, flight management, GPS, ACARS, and central diagnostic systems are then thoroughly gone over from the perspective of the flightline technician and using examples from specific installations.
