Upcoming Courses

Instructor: Albert Helfrick
June 5 - June 23, 2023
This course meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00am to 2:00pm US Central Time.

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. You will learn 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 you to the unique language of avionics (abbreviations, terms and acronyms) and connects these terms to the systems they represent.

Earn 35 classroom hours and 3.5 CEUs.

Who Should Attend?

This course is for engineers and technicians involved with avionics but may not have attended formal courses in avionics. It would also suit those who work in a specific area of avionics and who would benefit from learning the latest developments in areas outside of their discipline or a brush-up on basics.

Instructor: Albert Helfrick
October 23 - November 10, 2023
This course meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00am to 2:00pm US Central Time.

Advanced Avionics covers systems that will be the mainstay of CNS (communications, navigation and surveillance) in the future. Course material reviews the basic theory of navigation and provides a thorough introduction and survey of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), with emphasis on GPS. Modern surveillance systems based on Mode-S and ADS-B are also covered as are both wired and wireless communications systems. This course includes in-class exercises that involve college-level mathematics.

This course covers some of the same topics as Fundamental Avionics (taught by the same instructor), but in much greater detail. Fundamental Avionics is not a prerequisite for this course. Additional subject matter covered in this course was previously included in Introduction to Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) (also taught by the same instructor), which is no longer offered. Advanced Avionics will provide a good review for those who may have studied these subjects previously.

Earn 35 classroom hours and 3.5 CEUs.

Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for engineers involved in the design and development of avionics components and systems.
