Engine and Propeller

One of the best ways to learn the intricate details of an aircraft engine is to shadow an A&P mechanic who's working on one. But if you don't have the time or easy access to an A&P, you can learn the basics of piston engines in the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's online course Engine and Propeller . The course covers carbureted and injected engines and fixed-pitch and constant-speed props. Course topics include hot starting fuel-injected engines, controlling and monitoring engine temperatures, preventive maintenance, and more.
