Developed by Peter A. Vosbury and Bill Kohlruss of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University as a primary textbook for aircraft systems courses in a university professional pilot program.

Aircraft Systems For Professional Pilots is the newest and most up to date book available from Pete Vosbury and William Kohlruss of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University covering all airframe and engine related systems that are required for an aircraft to be operated effectively, efficiently, and safely by the flight crew. This book is intended for individuals who are learning to fly with their goal being a career as a pilot in corporate, commercial or military aviation or for the already professional pilot who wants a review of how systems work.

A commercial airline pilot instinctively knows that their airplane has a hydraulic system, but they may have forgotten the details of what type of pump is used and how the pump works. This book will provide all those details.

The systems discussed cover everything from small airplanes like a Cessna 172, to a large commercial airliners like a Boeing 787. While not intended to provide intricate details, with the examples in this book firmly in place, the details studied in a complex airplane’s ground school will be much more easily understood.

Chapters include: DC and AC electricity, generators and motors, electrical systems, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, landing gear and braking systems, environmental systems, ice and rain control, fire protection, fuel systems, reciprocating engines, turbine engines, and propeller systems.

To Instructors:
The authors of the book, Professors Peter Vosbury and Bill Kohlruss, are willing to provide support to any university program that adopts the book for their aircraft systems course. The support will include access to the Powerpoint presentations that Professor Vosbury uses for his systems course, and access to some systems videos.
