Meridian Jet Center Hosts Wiring Class

Students getting hands-on experience in "Practical Aircraft Wiring" class

Teterboro, NJ – During the week of April 16-20, 2012, Meridian Jet Center hosted a 5-day class entitled “Practical Aircraft Wiring for Line Maintenance” at its facility at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. The class was taught by David Hyland of Global Jet Services, based near Hartford, CT.

Practical Aircraft Wiring is a hands-on course that is highly recommended for all A&P and Avionics Technicians. The course is built with the understanding that repairing wiring is often harder than installing it in a new aircraft, and inspecting wiring is a critical function for aircraft safety.

The material covered different types of electrical wires and cables, including: cutting, stripping, crimping, soldering, splicing, and fabrication, as well as installation particulars like segregation, tying, tiewrapping and chafing problems. Discussions included recent incidents, causes, and prevention with particular attention to inspection of existing wiring.

John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center, had this to say, “Global Jet Services is a leading provider in aviation maintenance training, and we are proud to partner with them, and to host this informative class at our location”.
