The FAA-H-8083-30-ATB Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook is the most up-to-date, highest quality, AND most economical General textbook available. It is also the actual textbook from which all FAA knowledge test questions are based. It is up to date, easily readable, well illustrated, and in full color.
However, while FAA did a terrific job with the design of these handbooks, many errors and technical mistakes were overlooked through their proofing process. Revision ATB corrects over 90 of these errors which were identified by Aircraft Technical Book Company through a peer review team consisting of the six Part 147 A&P colleges listed below, thus making it the finest, most current, and most accurate textbook available to learn from and teach from.
1] Clover Park Technical College
2] Redstone College
3] Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics
4] Robert C. Byrd Aerospace Center
5] Blue Ridge Community College
6] Georgia NW Technical College
This book was developed as the first of three volumes for persons preparing for A&P mechanic certification with an airframe and/or powerplant rating.
This General volume covers mathematics, aircraft drawings, weight and balance, aircraft materials, processes and tools, physics, electricity, inspection, ground operations, and FAA regulations governing the certification and work of maintenance technicians. New to this edition is a section addressing how successful AMTs incorporate knowledge and awareness of ethics, professionalism, and human factors in the field.
