Airframe

[8 months]

In Airframe, you will learn about aircraft, their structures, flight controls and systems. Everything from vintage fabric covered to new modern day composite aircraft. Examples of systems instruction will include hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical, fuel, landing gear, com and nav, environmental control, etc. Basically, everything between the nose and tail of the aircraft, less the engines.
