This is McGraw Hillís A&P General textbook, written at a more advanced level than others, and so slightly exceeding the requirements for the A&P General examination.

Aircraft Basic Science provides the general technical information needed as a foundation for work as a technician in the field of aviation maintenance. The subjects covered in this text are those that are usually applicable to both airframes, powerplants, and their associated systems. Chapters are illustrated and present specific aspects of aircraft materials, fabrication processes, maintenance tools and federal aviation regulations.

The main topics include:
  • Fundamentals of Mathematics
  • Science Fundamentals
  • Basic Aerodynamics
  • Airfoils and Their Applications
  • Aircraft in Flight
  • Aircraft Drawings
  • Weight and Balance
  • Aircraft Materials
  • Metal Fabrication Techniques
  • Standard Aircraft Hardware
  • Hand Tools and Their Application
  • Aircraft Fluid Lines and Fittings
  • Federal Aviation Regulations
  • Technical Publications
  • Ground Handling and Safety
  • Aircraft Inspection and Servicing

Please note that in this series, coverage of electrical theory and electronics, which is normally a part of the A&P general curricula is instead extensively covered in a second book titled Aircraft Electricity and Electronics which is also linked below.
