Today’s aircraft contain incredibly sophisticated electronic equipment. In addition to radar, you may find anti-collision systems, weather detection systems, sophisticated communications, GPS tracking systems, and more. The failure of any one of these systems could put pilots and passengers at risk. Trained avionics technicians are needed to install, maintain, and repair important electronic components.   If you’re technically-minded and like working with your hands, you might want to consider pursuing a career in avionics. Begin by training with an FAA-approved school that teaches avionics maintenance. This guide, presented by Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, gives you an overview of the skills and concepts you can learn in an avionics maintenance school.   General Education The greatest technical talent isn’t worth much without an ability to communicate and reason. What you learn in general education courses can improve your ability to:

Avionics” is a combination of the words “aviation” and “electronics”, believed to have been coined by journalist Philip J. Klass in the 1970s.[i] It refers to any electrical systems used on an aircraft. This can be as simple as cabin lighting, or as complex as the automatic pilot. The different components of an aircraft’s avionics play critical roles in the craft’s flight, performance, and safety. Avionics History During the early history of aviation, electrical components were added to aircraft in an ad-hoc fashion, rather than under an organized system. As with many other developments in flight, the field of what would be known as avionics advanced greatly during World War II. German, British, and American aircraft all added radar systems to their planes. Additionally, US bombers adopted autopilot systems, first successfully tested in 1930[ii], in order to keep planes flying steadily while taking aim at targets. Today, the majority of a military aircraft’s price tag is spent on the avionics components, including radar, targeting, communications and countermeasure systems, rather than on the engines or other mechanical parts. Common Avionics Components Passenger aircraft have increasingly sophisticated avionics systems. These can include:
