Course detail: Electromagnetic Effects Aircraft Level Testing and FAA Requirements - ONLINE

This course discusses the concepts of aircraft ground and flight testing that may be required to ensure aircraft level systems are safe for operation when exposed to the effects of electromagnetic effects (EME), high intensity radiated fields (HIRF), lightning, precipitation static (P-static), and transmitting personal electronic devices (TPEDs). This course presents the fundamentals of coordinating and performing aircraft testing from a very practical, step-by-step perspective, and examines the process used by aircraft OEMs to show compliance to regulations relating to EME, HIRF, lightning, p-static, and TPEDs. The course will also include a high-level overview for electromagnetic effects areas including electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), high intensity radiated fields (HIRF), lightning transit analysis, precipitation static (P-static) and transmitting personal electronic devices (TPEDs) requirements.


  • Aircraft testing fundamentals
  • Coordination of aircraft testing activities
  • Documentation of test procedures and results
  • FAA aircraft-level certification requirements
  • Problem and solution discussions
  • EME testing team workshops
