    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would HIGHLY recommend this course. The teacher is about 84 years old and he is the BEST one in the school. He is funny, witty and simply has a clever way of teaching and applying concepts. He drills the information into your head instead of making you read or memorize parts of a book (ADs or 8083-13). The course is about Magnetos and Carburetors. Mostly its an introductory class for junior year FAA classes at AVHS. Senior year you are going to have Advanced Power-plant where you will learn fuel injection. Keep the class notebook with all your notes with you till then. The concepts REALLY help understanding the fuel injection concept and its application. The magnetos are from 1945 but they are still working. Final exam counts 25%, sizes (there are 3) counts 25% and work/verbal grades count 50%. There are 2 verbals and 4 jobs, 2 for magnetos and 2 for carburetors. Always refer to the maintenance manual over the 8083 because it has more specific information and operation.

    Course highlights:

    Highlight: Mr. David Messina shocks the whole class of 27 with a High Tension Magneto the first day of class. He also shows a demonstration of how a 14 cylinder engine fires by showing you the actual sparks. It looks like a thunderstorm. Learn: Advanced concepts/theories and applications of both the magneto and carburetors. He also related it to automobiles rather then AirCraft engines because it is easier to understand. Although its a "Basic" class, he really gives you insight on Senior Year power plant classes and some IMPORTANT basic theories of fuel injection.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Before taking your verbals with Mr. Messina, PLEASE go over all his lessons. Some of the verbal questions might seem out of context or beyond what you have learnt so far in the class, but they are all there in the lesson. If he says to look into the book for an answer, DO NOT look into the book. He is an FAA teacher so thats why he is obligated to make a book reference. Always look into the lessons. Every slide has the books reference and page number as a footer (bottom right). He might ask you about the reference once in a while.
