Aircraft Glass Cockpit Operation and Maintenance is an introduction into aircraft glass cockpit systems. The book is written for all technicians who want to learn about the more complex indicating systems. If you are an A&P that desires to learn more about the modern aircraft they are working. Or if your are a technician from Canada or Europe this book will help you with the Advanced Avionics segment for certification. This book will help anyone who wants to learn more about how all of the navigation and indicating flight systems "talk" to each other or just to look into the complication world of a modern aircraft cockpit. This book covers how a cathode ray tube works and the new light emitting diode and liquid crystal display systems. In this book, you will also learn about the new heads-up guidance systems that are now becoming standard in large aircraft. This book begins with the progression of glass displays into cockpits to how these complicated systems communicate with the crew and the aircraft flight management systems. Starting with the cathode ray tube, to liquid crystal to light emitting diodes this book teaches how these displays operate and how they might fail. This book will provide an aircraft general familiarization courses on the glass instrument indicating systems for a variety of aircraft. For general aviation aircraft this book covers the Garmin g 1000 system for air carrier aircraft there are sections for the Boeing 757 and 737 or the Bombardier CRJ and Challenger indication systems. With just under 300 pages of full color 8 1/2 by 11 this book is full of drawings and diagrams to help visualize, in simple terms, the complex systems that are becoming standard for aircraft manufactured today.
