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, covering all airframe related systems that are required for an aircraft to be operated effectively, efficiently, and safely by the flight crew. This book is intended to be used by individuals who are learning how to fly aircraft, and whose goal is a career as a pilot in corporate, commercial or military aviation. This book is also an excellent resource for individuals who are already professional pilots, and who wish to go back and review the fundamentals of how aircraft 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.

This book covers everything from the basics to the more advanced. When studying electricity, for example, the fundamentals are covered first (Ohm’s Law, Power, Circuit Elements, etc), before covering the details of how generators and motors work, and finally how the overall electrical system is put together. The systems discussed cover everything from a small airplane like a Cessna 172, to a large commercial airliner like a Boeing 787. This book is not intended to give the intricate details of how the systems in a particular aircraft work. However, with the fundamentals and the examples provided by this book firmly in place, the intricate details studied in a complex airplane’s ground school will be much more easily understood.

Complete with hundreds of full color illustrations and photographs, there is also a detailed table of contents and index, and an extensive glossary of terms. The sixteen chapters in the book are presented in a sequence that allows the material in each chapter to build on what was presented earlier.

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. Professor Vosbury is also available by phone or email to answer questions. Please contact us for this contact information.
