Aircraft Systems offers a fully illustrated and complete systems presentation of single-engine and light-twin engine aircraft; includes in-flight troubleshooting techniques-system by system; how to approach covers aircraft maintenance, fuel systems, electrical systems to deicing, and anti-deicing systems and more.
From the Back Cover:
What you need to know about how your airplane works. Focused on practical value to the pilot, Aircraft Systems takes you on a thoroughly illustrated tour of the systems that make your plane work, giving you step-by-step procedures and troubleshooting tips that improve safety and cut risk, no matter what the situation.
Pilot/mechanic David A. Lombardo, author of Advanced Aircraft Systems, presents crucial information on systems in single- and light twin-engine planes. No matter what page you turn to, you'll find fully illustrated, system-by-system information that will help you: make better piloting decisions both in the air and on the ground; avoid risk with a better understanding of pre-flight inspections; troubleshoot in-flight problems and handle emergencies in any system; cut costs with better maintenance, improved communication with mechanics, and correct choices in engine overhauls; recognize and overcome bad interactions between systems; improve interpersonal relationships with passengers and crew. Full of life-saving information, from the anatomy of a tire, to emergency electrical system failure load shedding, Aircraft Systems delivers the critical, confidence-building guidance that you'll rely on every time you enter the cockpit.
