Standard Aviation Maintenance Handbook
Jeppesen Sanderson Inc
When you just want a quick piece of information at the track, the full FAA Aircraft Inspection and Repair Manual can be overkill. This handbook distills the most useful information in the FAA manual into an easy-to-use reference. Everything in the book is aircraft-related, so you won't waste time paging through tip calculators or instructions on estimating a cord of firewood.
Sections of particular interest to racers are a list of weights for various liquids; conversion tables for weights and measures; basics of air-worthy construction practices; safety wiring instructions; and a reference section covering aircraft hardware and plumbing fittings. This is the second-handiest reference book in your toolbox (after our catalog, of course)!
Softback, 235 pages with numerous line drawings. Ring binding allows it to lay flat on your workbench.
(John is especially happy we're carrying this book now. The well-worn copy he keeps here at his desk was pulled from his own toolbox several years ago.)
