Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.; Coast Guard Inst., Oklahoma City, OK.
This self-paced, individualized course, adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational and technical education, teaches students the skills needed to become aviation structural mechanics (first class). The course materials consist of three pamphlets. The first pamphlet covers aircraft maintenance management, records, and reports as required by the standardized maintenance management system. Sheet metal layout and forming, including simple shop mathematics, is the subject of the second pamphlet. Also included are the different forming processes used on aircraft parts. The final pamphlet, aircraft damage repair, is divided into three sections containing the following information: inspection and classification of aircraft damage, types of repairs to be made, and selection of repair materials; general procedures for repairing reinforced plastic and sandwich construction components; and procedures for selecting and using rivets for aircraft repair. Each pamphlet is a student workbook with reading assignments, learning objectives, self-tests, and answers to the tests. Materials are illustrated with line drawings. (KC)
