This extensive module builds upon the knowledge from earlier modules and provides explanations of fixed-wing aerodynamics and all the main systems found in modern civil aircraft: airframe, air conditioning, cabin pressurisation, instruments, electrical power, equipment & furnishings, fire protection, flight controls, fuel systems, hydraulic power, ice & rain protection, landing gear, lights, oxygen, pneumatics, water & waste, onboard maintenance systems, integrated modular avionics (IMA), cabin systems and information systems.
Note that there are two versions of this module available:
- 11A is tailored for aircraft powered by turbine engines (applicable for those studying towards A1 or B1.1 licences).
- 11B is tailored for piston engine aircraft (applicable for those studying towards A2 or B1.2 licences).
