Model AS-12 is a functional fuel injection system trainer that demonstrates the working principle of a Teledyne Continental (or TCM) fuel injection system. The trainer is built to provide the instructor an effective resource for teaching, as well as to provide hands-on training to the students. The carburetorless fuel systems are very commonly used on general aviation aircraft, and students must be very familiar with the TCM fuel injection system in order to effectively maintain and troubleshoot the system. Our Model AS-12 and associated documentation provides a complete resource to meet the applicable regulatory requirements for aircraft maintenance training schools.
The trainer is equipped with instructor’s panel in the back of the panel that allows the instructor to insert various faults. The students are trained to apply a logical methodology to locate and identify the fault, and to determine a remedial action to fix the problem.
The training value of the Model AS-12 is further enhanced by our proprietary computer-based training (CBT), which is included with the equipment. The CBT covers the basic concepts of fuel injection systems with the help of visually rich contents. The CBT is very user friendly due to short text substantiated by clear illustrations and animations.
The trainer is mounted on a stand with caster wheels, including brakes, to facilitate the instructor and students to position the stand for good visibility and easy access during teaching sessions.
