The Aviation Maintenance Technician Series textbooks were created to set the pace for maintenance technician training and attain a level of quality that surpasses all other maintenance textbooks on the market. AMTS Airframe, Volume 2: Systems is the second book of the series, which is divided into 2 volumes. Airframe: Systems covers the various systems involved with the airframe, encompassing electrical, fuel, cabin atmosphere control, instruments, communications and navigation, ice and rain control, and fire protection systems, and aircraft inspections. First published in 1994, this new Third Edition features full-color throughout, and content was updated as a result of industry changes, new materials and practices, and new airplanes and cockpit systems. Written by industry expert Dale Crane, the Airframe textbooks were also reviewed by an editorial team consisting of Aviation Maintenance Technicians, Inspection Authorization holders, university professors, aircraft owners, and aviation maintenance journalists. Dale Crane's textbooks consist of the most complete and up-to-date material for A&P training. The curriculum meets 14 CFR Part 147 requirements and Subject Matter Knowledge Codes from the FAA mechanics knowledge tests. They are designed for at-home, classroom, or university-level training. These comprehensive textbooks include full-color charts, tables and illustrations throughout, in addition to an extensive glossary, index, and additional career information. A study guide is included within each textbook in the form of Study Question sections, with Answer keys printed at the end of each chapter.

"This Note is part of a series that derives a set of equations suitable for estimating the acquisition costs of various types of aircraft airframes in the absence of detailed design and manufacturing information. A single set of equations was selected as being the most representative and applicable to the widest range of estimating situations. For fighters, the equation set uses airframe unit weight as the variable."--Rand abstracts.

Military Airframe Costs

The Effects of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Processes

In recent years, a number of attempts have been made to estimate the cost of future weapon systems toward the goal of optimizing acquisition policy. This report focuses specifically on the effects of material mix, manufacturing techniques, and geometric part complexity on the cost of military airframes. It begins by offering background information on those materials that are most critical to airframe manufacture and on the relative advantages of both traditional and evolving part fabrication techniques. It then proceeds to a quantitative analysis of the cost implications of various materials and manufacturing techniques on airframe production, drawing both from an industry survey and from analysis of industry data. The data thus derived are then integrated with those of a comprehensive historical database. The report concludes that composites, while offering a number of advantages over metals in airframe manufacture, are generally associated with higher costs across a range of categories. At the same time, it concludes that while new manufacturing technologies hold the potential to diminish airframe manufacturing costs, the increased airframe complexity of future fighter aircraft may well offset this advantage. The report recommends that cost analysts remain abreast of changes in industry practice so that they may more accurately gauge the potential effects of such changes on future airframe costs.
