EASA Module 15
Gas Turbine Engines
Click Picture to see Sample Pages
Module 15; Gas Turbine Engine covers turbine engines, performance, operation, and its related systems to the extent required for the EASA B1.1 and B1.3 aviation maintenance technician examinations and license, which is a higher level than for A&P studies. With this full color, highly illustrated book, you will learn by understanding concepts, not just rote memorization and will understand how to apply this knowledge on the job in the MRO or flightline environment.
This book is fully compliant as EASA Part 66 module 15 for the B1 and has been given approvals by numerous EASA based civil aviation authorities.
