Piston Engines for Aircraft Maintenance


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)
  • Supercharging and Turbocharging Systems (L2)
  • Lubricants and Fuels (L2)
  • Lubrication Systems (L2)
  • Engine Indicating Systems (L2)
  • Powerplant Installation (L2)
  • Engine Monitoring and Ground Operations (L2)
  • Engine Storage and Preservation (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.

Revision Service:
As with all ATB B1 and B2 modules, the purchase of this manual includes a free two-year revision service subscription. To enter your subscription, follow the instructions shown on page 2 of each book. Then, for two years of purchase, if any changes or updates occur in this book for regulatory or other reasons, you will receive by email an eBook version of that complete new edition.

Instructor Services:
For schools considering the adoption of ATB modules as your primary student notes, we offer various additional services including projectable image banks, examination question databases, and generous additional support for instructors and your requirements for competent authorities.
