This Powerplant Handbook (combined volumes 1 and 2) was developed by FAA as the third of three sections for persons preparing for A&P mechanic examinations and their Powerplant certification.
The FAA-H-8083-32A-ATB Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic's Powerplant Handbook is the most up-to-date, highest quality, and most economical Powerplant textbook available. It is also the actual source from which all FAA knowledge test questions are derived. In the words from FAA; “if it's in this book, it's on the test. If it's on the test, it's in this book.
However, while FAA did a terrific job with the development of this handbook, many technical errors were made. In this ATB peer-reviewed edition, dozens of these errors were found and corrected (for example MS fittings are color-coded green, not blue) thus making it the finest, most current, and most accurate textbook available to learn and teach from. A complete correction log appears on page 5.
