Course detail: AERO0310 - Fundamental Avionics
This course provides a very broad overview of avionics. It covers the historical evolution of the avionics industry and usage of avionics to the present day. This gives the student an understanding of why avionics is what it is today, in addition to understanding how it works. The course covers legacy systems still in use and the latest state-of-the-art systems currently being installed. The avionics environment is an important part of this course. In the context of this course, "environment" refers not only to the physical environment of pressure, temperature, vibration, etc. but the regulatory environment. Systems are an important part of this course, and system communications and assessment are covered. This course introduces the student to the unique language of avionics (abbreviations, terms and acronyms) and connects these terms to the systems they represent.
