A fully functional 727 aircraft is used to teach transport-sized aircraft procedures and troubleshooting techniques.

Thurman: We try to maintain a 50/50 balance
between theory and hands-on labs. Our instructors
scour the internet for current and relevant material
to complement the textbooks and lab exercises. Our
presence at the AEA Connect Conferences and the annual
AEA International Convention & Trade Show is one way
we stay current in the industry.
Reading articles in Avionics News magazine is another
way we stay up-to-date. We are constantly striving to
improve the program, including updating textbooks and
adding new lessons. Recent examples of this include
the addition of in-flight entertainment and ADS-B
modules to our communications and navigations class
and our radar and line maintenance classes, respectively.
We recently adopted new core electronics and aircraft
systems textbooks.
Nine years ago, we developed a small avionics
installation project for our students. We have continued
to develop and expand this project, and it now covers
three classes and provides practical hands-on experience
in all elements of avionics installations, including lacing,

crimping, securing harnesses, mounting racks, and
designing, cutting and drilling brackets for switches and
jacks.
The project covers the use of four different crimpers,
open and closed barrel contacts, standard and highdensity pins and sockets, as well as creating wiring
diagrams through installation manuals. Students learn
to do a proper ring out of the harnesses they build and
properly document their work on work orders.

Avionics News: How are you doing things
differently to keep up with technological advancements?
What is new and exciting in your curriculum?
Thurman: We hold two professional advisory
committee meetings each year. These meetings provide
an opportunity for the representatives from the industry
to evaluate our program and make recommendations.
Additions to our program that have come from these
