Course DescriptionPresents federal aviation regulations as they pertain to the aircraft mechanic, plus some "action" learning on servicing and operation of the aircraft on the ground. Prerequisites: Placement into RD 90 or higher; WR 90 or higher; AMT 101 with a minimum grade of "C" or higher. Prerequisites/concurrent: MTH 60 or with AMT Department Chair permission, the AMT Department Math test with a 70% or higher. Audit available.
Addendum to Course Description
This course is part of a Program designed to meet some of the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for certification of Aviation Mechanics, and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Upon completion of the Program, the student should be able to:
- Meet the identified Degree and Certificate Outcomes identified in the document found at http://www.pcc.edu/resources/academic/degree-outcome/amt.html as appropriate for coursework level completed.
- Successfully complete FAA Knowledge testing, in a written test format, as identified in the document: FAA-G-8082-3A - AVIATION MAINTENANCE TECHNICIANGENERAL, AIRFRAME, AND POWERPLANT KNOWLEDGE TEST GUIDE
- Successfully complete FAA Knowledge and Skill testing, in an oral and practical test format, as identified in the following documents, as appropriate:
a. FAA-S-8081-26 -AVIATION MECHANIC GENERAL - Practical Test Standards
b.FAA-S-8081-27 AVIATION MECHANIC AIRFRAME Practical Test Standards
c.FAA-S-8081-28 AVIATION MECHANIC POWERPLANT Practical Test Standards
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon successful completion students should be able to:
- Identify and implement a strategy for avoiding aircraft ground-operating hazards.
- Identify and implement aircraft type requirements for safe starting, ground operation and movement, servicing and securing.
- Select and use or compose entries for aircraft maintenance forms, records, reports and documents.
- Read, comprehend, and apply information contained in FAA and manufacturer's aircraft maintenance publications and data.
- Interpret and apply the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) regarding mechanic privileges, limitations, and certification procedures required for aircraft maintenance.
Course Activities and Design
Lecture/discussion/demonstration sessions and lab projects, supported by written instructional materials, will present to the student background knowledge needed at entry level for related aviation maintenance employment, and to perform the written, oral, and practical tests which are required for FAA certification of Aviation Mechanics. The assignment of four credit hours to this course indicates that students will be involved with the course content for approximately 120 hours. Class participants will be expected to invest time outside of the official scheduled class hours in their efforts to master the course content. For this course to be creditable toward the FAA authorized Certificate of Completion, the total hours recorded for the course must not be less than 90% of the hours offered during the module (typically 90 hours). Material missed by students during allowed absence will be made available to them in one or more ways, as selected by the instructor. The student is responsible for checking with the instructor following any absence, and for accessing the missed material that is made available.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Evaluation methods include written and oral testing, attendance and class participation, and satisfactory completion of class projects. Evaluation levels will be at least those defined in 14 CFR Part 147 Appendices and in this Course Content & Outcome Guide. A letter grade of C (minimum 76%) or higher is required for this course to be creditable toward the FAA authorized Certificate of Completion.
