Aviation Mechanic Test Standards: General, Airframe & Powerplant


ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. Every PTS is written by the FAA and details the type and level of skill and knowledge that must be demonstrated before an examiner can issue a certificate or rating to an applicant, describing also the background study and reference materials.

This new PTS guide for mechanics includes all three current standards in one book for the General (8081-26A), Airframe (8081-27A), and Powerplant (8081-28A) sections of the Oral & Practical exams which are the last step in the quest for the FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certificate. The standards presented in these guides are the only way for AMT students, their instructors, as well as the examiners themselves, to know what the FAA expects for these required tests. Therefore theyare essential for preparation, studying, passing, and administering the tests to become FAA-certified aviation mechanics.

Change 1 from the FAA is included as a tip-in pamphlet, which brings the 2012 Edition up-to-date with the FAA’s latest release of material effective September 2015.
