The fifth edition of this book is designed to prepare aviation mechanic applicants to demonstrate their skill and understanding of the required elements outlined in the FAA airman certification standards (FAA-S-ACS-1). This complete resource includes information on the certification process and covers all the practical skills and required knowledge in a question-and-answer format, with references defined for further study.
