Avotek released an updated title to its avionics series, Avionics: Beyond the AET second edition. The avionics series consists of four titles, with Beyond the AET coming in as the second book. Its main purpose is preparing students to pass their NCATT Radio Communication Systems, Dependent Navigation Systems, and Autonomous Navigation Systems tests.
The textbook, originally written in 2012 by Tom Inman, serves a very important role within the avionics series. However, as technology progressed, portions of the book slowly became more out of date. Inman realized this and took action. With Avotek helping out, Inman updated the textbook.
Updates for the second edition include the latest in radio communication theory and practice, the latest in aviation dependent navigation systems (specifically GBAS and GLS), added new terminology, illustrations and photos, index terms, glossary definitions, and more. Outdated material was replaced with what is most current.
Avionics: Beyond the AET second edition can be purchased on the Avotek website or over the phone for $54.95. Avotek offers the textbook in three formats: a downloadable PDF, a web-based interactive eBook, and paperback.
