College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Airframe Systems and Applications
This course is an introduction to airframe systems and applications. The study of airframe systems such as aircraft electrical system, fuel systems, cabin atmosphere control systems, instrument systems, communication and navigation systems, ice and rain control systems, fire protection systems, and aircraft inspection are included in this course.

This course is designed to provide foundational knowledge into the various aspects of aeronautical airframe systems. Upon successful completion of the course the student will have an operational knowledge of the principles, fundamentals and technical procedures surrounding airframe systems and applications.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Describe and apply aircraft electrical system components and application requirements.

2. Identify and describe aircraft fuel systems and components to include reciprocating and turbine engines.

3. Evaluate the laws of flight physiology involved in various aircraft systems.

4. Explain and interpret the laws of basic fluid and pressure physics as they relate to aircraft systems.

5. Identify the principles of aircraft oxygen, pressurization, and air conditioning control systems.

6. Examine the development, classification, design, installation, and operations of aircraft instruments.

7. Compare and contrast fundamentals of aircraft avionics, radio communications and components.

8. Assess aircraft ice systems, rain systems and their applications.

9. Evaluate fire protection systems and their applications.

10. Examine and differentiate regulations and various data pertaining to aircraft inspections, maintenance, repair, and troubleshooting.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
