The 1,500-square-foot Aircraft Systems Lab is equipped to support two AMS courses: AMS 263 General Aviation Aircraft Systems and AMS 365 Transport Category Aircraft Systems.
During the AMS 263 course, students study the theory of operation, inspection and troubleshooting of systems found on general aviation and turboprop aircraft. The lab contains a wide variety of equipment used in systems such as hydraulics, air conditioning, oxygen, landing gear, tires and brakes, and ice and rain detection/protection.
The theory of operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of systems on large jet aircraft is the subject of the AMS 365 course. The lab is equipped with items from large hydraulic and pneumatic systems, environmental control systems, large landing gear systems, fire detection and suppression, and flight control systems.
