Aircraft Maintenance and Repair Seventh Edition by Michael J. Kroes, William A. Watkins, Frank Delp and Ronald Sterkenburg.
In preparing this edition, the authors reviewed FAR Parts 65 and 147, FAA-H8083-30 & 31, AC 43.13-1B & 2B, and manufacturers’ and operators’ manuals and data to ensure that all required areas of study were included.
This revised edition updates material from the previous edition relating to aircraft structures and systems on current operational aircraft. Figures, charts, and photos have been updated to reflect new technology. The advanced composite materials chapter has been completely rewritten to reflect state-of-theart maintenance and repair information and techniques for advanced composite structures used in modern aircraft. Advanced automated systems such as ECAM and EICAS are discussed in most chapters to reflect their operation relative to particular aircraft systems. The structures chapter has been expanded with multiple examples for the calculation of bend allowance and the setup of shop equipment. The hydraulics chapter has been expanded to include the 5000-psi hydraulic systems used in some new aircraft models. A discussion of a centralized fault display system (CFDS) has been added to the troubleshooting chapter.
