Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (Avionics)
AVIONICS derived from “aviation” and “electronics”. It comprises electronic systems for use on aircraft, artificial satellites and spacecraft, comprising communications, navigation and the display and management of multiple systems. It also includes the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to meet individual roles; these can be as simple as a search light for a police helicopter or as complicated as the tactical system for an Airborne Early Warning platform.
The cockpit of an aircraft is a major location for display of avionics equipment, including control, monitoring, communication, navigation, weather, and anti-collision systems. Instrumental, Electrical and Radio/Radar Navigation systems are the achievement target for avionics engineering.
