As with all ATB EASA modules, Piston Engines strictly matches the requirements of Part 66 including its content, sequence, and the required learning levels (L1, 2, or 3) needed for an approved B1 mechanic maintenance technician program, and is so approved by many national authorities as a part of the training programs of Part 147 schools within their jurisdiction.
As prescribed in Part 66 Appendix 1, the topics are divided in 13 sections:
- Piston Engine Fundamentals (L2)
- Engine Performance (L2)
- Engine Construction (L2)
- Fuel Systems (L2)
- Starting and Ignition Systems (L2)
- Induction, Exhaust, and Cooling Systems (L2)

Complete table of contents is included with the Look Inside link above.
Each topic is explained with understandable text and exceptional full-color illustrations in step-by-step detail. You will learn by understanding concepts and how and why each skill is useful in the day-to-day tasks of the aircraft technician in the aviation maintenance environment. For FAA A&P students, all required topics are covered, however to the somewhat higher level of proficiency as the EASA licenses require.
