Subject Title
Advanced Aircraft Systems

Subject Description
ASY500 and AAS700 together provide students with a complete technical and operating knowledge of CARS 704 and 705 class aircraft. The two courses combined are similar to courses given by commercial air carriers but they provide a more in-depth study of the technical aspects of these aircraft. Among the many topics covered in AAS700 are: Flight Management Systems (FMS); Flight Navigation Systems (FNS); Auto-pilot and Auto-land Systems. Coverage of the topics of ASY500 and AAS700 will give the student knowledge and insight into how transport category aircraft systems are designed and integrated in order to provide safe aircraft operation for all possible normal and emergency flight situations. The Canadair Regional Jet CRJ200 aircraft is used as an example of CARS704 and 705 aircraft and its systems are studied in detail using the latest advanced multimedia software. This software allows for interactive student participation and real time displays of systems operation.

One Credit

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Explain the layout, design and operation of aircraft FMS, FNS and auto-pilot systems.

2. Explain how various advanced airplane systems are integrated and operationally engaged for normal and emergency flight operation.

3. Perform analysis and comparisons of a variety of aircraft systems and explain how they account for and handle the many flight conditions that the airplane encounters.

4. Perform analysis and comparisons of data provided by a variety of aircraft systems when the aircraft is in abnormal flight modes and demonstrate, using software, the correct steps and inputs required to return the aircraft safely within the operating envelope.

5. Identify the correct responses for emergency situations that the airplane encounters during abnormal flight modes.

6. Manipulate, using software, FMS controls and Auto Flight Control Systems to perform advanced aircraft maneuvers for normal and emergency situations.

7. Use observational and critical thinking skills to develop pathways to solve any operational condition or emergency that the airplane encounters.

8. Explain how inadequacies in system design can endanger the airplane and require special knowledge and skills of the pilot to overcome them.
