Teaches recognition, diagnostic, and problem solving processes, including related FAA regulations.

Avionics Troubleshooting and Repair is the title of this book, but Avionics INSTALLATION and troubleshooting would be the better name. It is written for those who are in the process of selecting, and installing avionics components, and who want an understanding of the typical problems associated with these systems. It shows how to diagnose faults, how to plan or build against them, and how to understand the causes of common problems and repair procedures. It is very up-to-date, and very complete, and without a doubt, a great asset for anyone designing and installing new or upgraded system.

This is a book written for pilots and the beginning professional technician. It will give you everything you need for installation procedures, routine maintenance and testing, and the correction of basic system faults.
