The model AS-08 Aircraft Pneumatic System Trainer is designed to provide hands-on training on a functional pneumatic system that uses actual aircraft parts. The system represents a pneumatic system that is used as an emergency backup for hydraulic system. A typical example is emergency braking system in case of hydraulically actuated brake failure.
The trainer can be operated by a switch which allows the air pressure from a reservoir to operate an actuator.The reservoir can be refilled after use from any pressurized air source like shop air or air compressor commonly found in AMT schools.
