When you are teaching a complicated subject like aviation maintenance, it helps to have good visual aids. The folks at Aviation Supplies & Academics (ASA) can assist with that by supplying slides drawn from the pages of the FAA's Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbooks 8083-30B, 8083-31B, and 8083-32B

"The slides are categorized and labeled to make them easy to identify for the chapter and subject you want to use,” according to ASA. “The graphics can be viewed as a slideshow, or you can use individual slides in your own presentation."

The slides, more than 3,000 in all, are pulled from the General, Airframe, and Powerplant FAA Handbooks covering the Aviation Maintenance Technician knowledge requirements including:

  • Mathematics and physics
  • Electricity
  • Aircraft drawings
  • Weight and balance
  • Fluid lines and fittings
  • Cleaning and corrosion control
  • Aerodynamics
  • Assembly and rigging
  • Airframe systems
  • Reciprocating engines
  • Turbine engines
  • Powerplant auxiliary systems

These are all the subjects required by Part 147 and the Aviation Mechanic Airman Certification Standards (ACS-1).

The slides are available from brick-and-mortar stores or online marketplaces for a suggested retail price of $49.95.
