The aviation maintenance technician must understand the operating principles of the reciprocating engine he has to service, and it is for this reason that this training manual has been prepared.

The generation of power in a reciprocating engine along with the factors which affect the amount of power the engine can develop are discussed, along with the construction and operation of the aircraft engine in various configurations.
