A properly functioning engine fuel metering system is critical to the safety of an aircraft engine. The student learns the theory of operation behind piston and turbine engine metering systems to include float and pressure carburetors, fuel injection systems, hydro mechanical, and Full Authority Digital Engine Control. As many of these units are precision assemblies, the student learns which units can and can’t be repaired. The student discusses and practices removal/replacement, disassembly/reassembly, inspection, and adjustment.
