ATT 104 - Operating Systems I, Communication and Navigation

4 Credits, 5 Contact Hours
3 lecture periods 2 lab periods

Topical discussion on communication and navigation systems, schematic usage, special tooling and equipment, switching, circuit protection, and instrument panel features. Includes standard wiring practices of single and multiple flight instrumentation sources, location reporting equipment, and essential standard avionics flight devices.

Information: Additional self-paced independent course study materials are required for non-certified Airframe and Powerplant students.



Course Learning Outcomes
1.   Demonstrate proficiency in the requirements for navigation and communication procedures (frequencies and description of National Aerospace System (NAS) in general).

2.   Describe the processes involved in typical wiring selection for a specific application.

3.   Recall navigation and communication antenna locations, descriptions, and applications

4.   Systematically follow flow check lists for the functional check on navigation and communication equipment.

5.   Apply and demonstrate procedures for Very High Frequency OmniRange Navigation System (VOR) use, installation, and troubleshooting techniques.

6.   Demonstrate proficiency in Instrument Landing System and Marker beacon (ILS/ Marker beacon) use, installation, and troubleshooting techniques.

7.   Interpolate information to demonstrate the procedures involved in Automatic Direction Finder (ADF) use, installation, and troubleshooting techniques.

8.   Select proper process for the installation and troubleshooting techniques for Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) usage.

9.   Collect and apply proper data for Microwave Landing System (MLS) use, installation, and troubleshooting techniques.

10.  Analyze technical data and apply the information for transponder, intercom audio panel, and Emergency Locating Transmitter (ELT) use, installation, and troubleshooting techniques.

Note:  This is an accelerated overview course. It is the responsibility of the student to use supplemental information on subjects that are not fully understood. At the instructor’s discretion, a student without a current “A” airframe certificate issued from the FAA in good standing will be required to review and test on supplemental material available (on CD-ROM) for checkout from the Aviation Technology Center’s tool crib. Proof of current enrollment is required.


Effective Term:
