Aviation Training Tips: How to Get the Most Out of Your Lessons

There are lessons you can have in aviation that will lead to a career in aircraft maintenance. There is, for instance, EWIS training that you could undertake. This stands for Electrical Wiring Interconnection System.

When completing ewis training, it is possible to attend the lessons you require to become fully competent in the area of aircraft maintenance and repair. You will also finish your training with a thorough understanding of the electrical components used in an aircraft. You can learn, for instance, about inspection, cleaning, and how devices associated with aircraft connect.

We shall consider here some tips that will allow you to get the most out of your aviation training in aircraft electrical maintenance.

Communication Between Student and Instructor

Good communication between you and your instructor is essential so that you understand just what section of the aircraft you are working on and the safety implications of neglecting that area. The role that you are training for will be all about maintaining the safety of the aircraft’s electronics.

You will likely work on aircraft of different sizes but there will be human life to think of no matter what size it is. Aircraft sizes are measured in terms of how many engines they have.  The principle of how each plane is jet-propelled will be similar from one aircraft to another. There will be differences to learn, though.

If you always make a point of going over your notes at home it will reaffirm what your instructor has just taught you and then what they will be covering during the next lesson.

Speed of Working

You will need to show awareness to your instructor that you understand the need to have that aircraft back in service as soon as possible. You not only need to show an aptitude for thoroughness but also show that you are mindful of time constraints concerning an aircraft being out of service in terms of what it will be costing an airline.

Practice your skills of working quickly on other maintenance jobs at home. It is good, for instance, to be nimble-fingered. Know how to safely work as well, though. Speed does not have to compromise accuracy when you are up to speed with a job that you have become competent in.

How to Treat Aircraft

You should always approach each aircraft to be maintained as if it is your own. It is this kind of care that you will want your instructor to witness. Safety is the most important thing when maintaining aircraft of any kind, whether they are planes or helicopters. A pilot has few options when in the air and there is a fault that could have been detected earlier and fixed.

Be Diligent With Homework

As with any subject, aircraft maintenance will come with homework. This will be an opportunity for you to learn the various parts and tools of the aircraft. Make the most of this time, so that you are not hesitating so much when you are in the presence of your instructor and repairing or maintaining an aircraft in practice. The theory is as important as the practical skills.

See Your Course Through to the End

It can be so easy to give up on any course part-way through. As with everything, you should always persevere because aircraft technicians will be in demand because of how specialized a job it is. It is not as if a car mechanic or electrician can just switch to being an aircraft technician because the two modes of transport work on different principles in terms of how they are powered. Yes, it is good to have a mechanical or electrical brain, and already have a mind for safety, but it will require extra study in terms of an aircraft’s parts and the types of tools used for maintenance or repair of electrical connections.

Get Enough Sleep

As with any course of study, you should ensure that you have enough sleep before every lesson. This will help with absorbing information and making sure that you are not compromising the safety of your repair or maintenance to the aircraft. Just because your instructor is observing you does not mean that you can afford to miss something. The safety and competence of your observed work will be taken very seriously during training as it could mean an unsafe aircraft in a situation you would later be in complete control of.

Hopefully, the above will provide some useful tips whether you are considering or already taking part in aviation training that relates to the maintaining of aircraft.
