The Avionics Course introduces engineers and technicians to modern avionics. The course begins with the evolution of avionics technologies and the regulatory and advisory organizations that followed as the needs of the field developed. Early, now legacy avionics systems, are covered as an aid to introduce associated technologies such as charting and navigation. Although many legacy systems are slated to be reduced, their role becomes one of a backup and understanding those systems is important. The majority of the course is dedicated to the latest avionics systems that will be used in the implementation of Performance-Based Navigation, PBN, and Required Navigation Performance.
In addition to navigation, communications and surveillance systems will be introduced to complete the “Communications, Navigation, Surveillance” or CNS structure of avionics.
Because avionics is the future of the airline industry, professionals working in various capacities across the aviation industry can benefit from this knowledge including:
After completing this course you should be able to demonstrate a comprehensive and broad-based understanding of:
"It has often been said that aviation, and avionics in particular, has its own unique language of abbreviations and acronyms. This course will demystify some of that strange language and give insight on how the systems work."
Dr. Albert Helfrick, has over 50 years of experience in the avionics field. He has designed, or led the design of airborne navigation, communications and surveillance, CNS, systems in addition to ramp and shop test equipment.
