Aircraft Materials and Hardware covers the type of materials commonly used in aircraft and aerospace applications from ferrous and non-ferrous metals and testing procedures; composite fabrics and resins; the identification and uses of various AN and MS hardware, and electrical wiring and connecting devices. You will learn by understanding concepts, not just rote memorization and you will learn how and why each type of material and connector is useful in the day-day tasks of the aircraft technician in an aviation maintenance environment.

This book is fully compliant as EASA Part 66 module 6 for the B1 license and has been given approvals by numerous EASA based civil aviation authorities.
