AET by the chapter
A chapter by chapter guide to aircraft electronics associated with AET certification, for the student with little or no background in this field. This course has been produced as a way to present the material covered in the companion textbook and workbook and provide a complete learning experience at home, at work, or in a school setting.
The online lessons present only the essence of the material. This arrangement allows the student who has some knowledge, and only needs a refresher to quickly move through the online lessons. When a more detailed explanation is necessary, it can be found in the companion textbook. Additional examples and problems for solving are available in the workbook.
