Electrical Systems


The Electrical Systems Online Course was developed to help pilots transitioning to their first turbine-powered aircraft. This course is part of The Airline Transition Program and will help teach the learner relevant information on pneumatics, to be better prepared for aircraft systems training. You’ll be taught all the foundational knowledge you’ll need to excel during aircraft systems class.

  • After taking this course, you’ll fully understand the operation of advanced Electrical Systems.
  • We’ll teach you in-depth electrical theory starting with the basics and ending with the advanced. 
  • You’ll learn about many of the common components that make up the electrical system in a jet aircraft.
  • You’ll be able to correlate how all of the theories and components of electrics create a closed system for safe aircraft operation.
  • You’ll learn about all of the redundant systems in the electrical system that enables safe aircraft operation.

Electrical Systems Online Course

The Electrical Systems course is the third course that is part of The Airline Transition Program.

In this course, the learner will be taught basic electrical principles like Electrical Theory, Electrical Components, and finally Electrical Systems. You'll learn how a battery works, the difference between AC Power vs DC Power, how Generators and Alternators work, and finally the more advanced electrical systems you'll find in your first jet.

The content within this course has not been developed to be "aircraft type-specific" (although some aircraft specifics will be discussed) but is more generalized to easily explain and present the complex operational theory in electrical systems.

The in-depth knowledge that will be taught in this course will prepare the learner for Aircraft Systems Training at his or her first airline or corporate flight operation.

  • This course contains 1 hr 10 minutes of video lecture, and 17 pages of textual content.

This course requires no external materials. All supplemental text material will be provided below and from within the course once the learner has enrolled. To successfully pass this course, the learner must complete a series of interactive quizzes with a corrected minimum score of 80%. Quizzes will contain questions derived from the material that has been taught from within this course. The quizzes will include true/false, multiple-choice, and completion questions.


Electrical Theory

Dive into electrical theory to understand how a battery works and the difference between AC and DC Power.

Electrical Components

Discover how key components work, like a generator and alternator, the Constant Speed Drive, Rectifiers and Inverters.

Electrical Systems

Correlate how all of the theory and components of electrics create a closed system for safe aircraft operation.

Basic Electrics

You'll learn all of the basics on electrical theory, components, and system operation.

Advanced Electrics

You'll learn the more advanced electrical principles that will be found in the jet.

Electrical Redundancy

Discover the backup systems that minimize and prevent system failures in the jet.
