AE-30 Aircraft Piston Engine Trainer

AeroTrain’s Models AE-30 provides a cost-effective training resource for hands-on training in any AMT program. The trainer comes complete with an operational piston engine. The engine is connected to propeller assembly including spinner and governor. The engine is operated from a semi-enclosed test cell cabin that has all the necessary instrumentation and controls to run the engine.

The engine is mounted with all necessary electrical wiring, engine accessories, controls, and instruments that are needed for running the engine. The students may also be trained to remove and replace parts for field level maintenance practice.

The engine trainer may be mounted on wheels for easy mobility as shown above. For fixed installations, the trainer is provided with heavy duty vibration and shear mounts to absorb vibrations, as shown below.

The trainer is supplied with comprehensive documentation comprising of electrical schematics, user manual, training manual, and computer based training (CBT).

The computer-based training (CBT) covers the engine construction and operation in an easy-to-understand fashion. The CBT provides an easy-to-comprehend description of engine ignition & starting system, engine fuel system, and propeller control system.

The CBT enables the students to learn at their own pace the detailed description of the engine, with highresolution graphics and animations.

By using the CBT, supplied FREE with the engine trainer,students can come well prepared to the practical sessions, minimizing the time instructor has to spend explaining the concepts in the noisy background during engine operation.

Optional Item - Engine Data Acquisition System


The engine data acquisition system, Model AE-30-DAQ,is a real time data capturing system. The complete system includes engine-mounted sensors, signal conditioning circuits, data acquisition hardware, and the customized software that captures several engine parameters in real time.
