As the need to maintain our nation’s vastly different aircraft continues to become more complex, the Avionics Technician career major assists students in acquiring the knowledge, education and training standards associated with the daily duties, tasks and maintenance of today’s aviation electronics. Students will learn basic principles of physics and aerodynamics as well as safe ground handling procedures, aircraft drawings, and blueprints. Through instructor-lead lectures, open discussions, NIDA instructional support software, and extensive hands-on activities, successful students will become fluent in DC circuits, AC circuits, solid-state devices and technologies, digital systems technologies (the future of aviation instrumentation, a.k.a. ‘the glass cockpit”), high-reliability soldering techniques, terminal connectivity, and troubleshooting techniques.Career Major Length1128.00Total HoursCourse TitleHoursSolid State Components90.00Hand & Power Tools30.00Aviation Math30.00Solid State Circuits120.00Basic Physics and Aerodynamics48.00DC Circuits and Batteries120.00Ground Handling and Servicing30.00AC Circuits and Devices180.00Aircraft Drawings24.00Special Devices60.00Digital Concepts60.00Data Busses60.00EWIS Theory and Practices180.00Aircraft Cleaning and Corrosion Control30.00Weight and Balance36.00Workforce Staging30.00Workforce Staging30.00
