January 17 - February 14, 2023
This course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:30pm US Central Time.

This course discusses the FAA Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) and design concepts required to ensure all aspects of aircraft electrical wiring and installation are safe. It examines aircraft wiring as a system and reviews all Part 25 CFRs related to EWIS FAA certification. Student teams will review FAA Advisory Circulars and present practical applications of the information in a simulation of the EWIS certification process. EWIS requirements for aircraft maintenance and inspection will also be discussed.

Earn 31.5 classroom hours and 3.15 CEUs.

Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for all aircraft design areas including electrical, avionics, and HIRF/lightning engineers and aircraft technicians. Aircraft managers and project engineers working in electrical/avionics related areas should also attend.

Instructor: Albert Helfrick
June 5 - June 23, 2023
This course meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00am to 2:00pm US Central Time.

This course provides a very broad overview of avionics. It covers the historical evolution of the avionics industry and usage of avionics to the present day. You will learn why avionics is what it is today, in addition to understanding how it works. The course covers legacy systems still in use and the latest state-of-the-art systems currently being installed. The avionics environment is an important part of this course. In the context of this course, "environment" refers not only to the physical environment of pressure, temperature, vibration, etc. but the regulatory environment. Systems are an important part of this course, and system communications and assessment are covered. This course introduces you to the unique language of avionics (abbreviations, terms and acronyms) and connects these terms to the systems they represent.

Earn 35 classroom hours and 3.5 CEUs.

Who Should Attend?

This course is for engineers and technicians involved with avionics but may not have attended formal courses in avionics. It would also suit those who work in a specific area of avionics and who would benefit from learning the latest developments in areas outside of their discipline or a brush-up on basics.

$2,195 (early registration)
$2,395 (regular registration)
