AMT Handbook - Airframe-ASA-8083-31V1, Volume 1
The FAA released the new Powerplant and Airframe Handbooks for Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs). These new 8083 series AMT Handbooks supersede the corresponding AC 65 series handbooks: AC 65-15A is replaced by Airframe Volume 1 (ASA-8083-31V1) and Airframe Volume 2 (ASA-8083-31V2) and AC 65-12A is replaced by Powerplant Volume 1 and 2 (ASA-8083-32).
Along with the previously released AMT General Handbook (ASA-8083-30), these handbooks collectively provide the necessary information for persons preparing for mechanic certification - those seeking an AMT Certificate, also called an A&P license, with an Airframe and Powerplant rating. They are designed for use by instructors and applicants preparing for the FAA AMT Knowledge and Practical Exams. These handbooks will also serve as invaluable reference guides for already-certificated technicians who wish to improve their knowledge.
