In this course, you’ll learn about Bleed Air Components, Air Conditioning Packs, Pressurization Systems, Icing Meteorology, Ground Deicing, and In-Flight Anti-Icing Operations. The content within this course has not been developed to be “aircraft type-specific,” but more generalized to easily explain and present the complex operational theory in advanced pneumatic systems.
We’ll build on what we taught in the Turbine Engine Systems course by explaining more in-depth how bleed air systems work. We’ll discuss how air conditioning packs work, the basic operating principles of pressurization systems, some regulations and design considerations, then cabin pressure controllers and their various modes of operation. Finally, we’ll talk about some of the things you may have forgotten about icing. We’ll cover icing meteorology: how and why ice forms, the different types of ice, and their operational implications. We’ll talk about ground deicing, what fluids are used, and how to calculate how long the fluid remains good for (holdover charts). Lastly, we’ll teach you the various types of inflight icing protection systems, and how ice detection systems work.
The in-depth knowledge that you’ll lean in this course will help you prepare for aircraft systems training at your first airline.
This course requires no external materials. Any supplemental material will be provided from within the course once you have enrolled. To successfully pass this course, you must complete a series of interactive quizzes with a corrected minimum score of 100%. Quizzes will contain questions derived from the material that has been taught from within this course. The quiz will include true/false, multiple-choice, and completion questions.
