ATA iSpec 2200 .

It was originally introduced to the European community by the Association Européenne des Constructeurs de Matériel Aérospatial (AECMA). representing the aerospace industry. utilising a Common Source Database. .ATA S1000D • S1000D is an international specification for technical publications.

S1000D • By definition: S1000D is an international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications. . While this definition appears to restrict its use to technical publications. it has been found through application that the principles of the specification can also be applied to nontechnical publications.

Media • Paper – Permanent in White Paper – Amendments in Yellow Paper • Microfiche • CD .

One sheet is often part of a larger set. each sheet is stored in an envelope and placed upright in a file cabinet. . usually 4” x 6”.Microfiche • Microfiche is a sheet of film or plastic.

Microfiche Reader • Insert the microfiche sheet between the glass plates in a microfiche reader to view the image through a lens. .

You wind it on a microfilm reader in order to view it through a lens. Each reel is usually stored in a box. .Microfilm • Microfilm is 16 mm or 35 mm wide positive or negative film on a reel.

Aeronautical Standards .

Aeronautical Standards Standard AN BS EN MIL Description An American Army / Navy standard that is used for many small parts on aircraft. A US military standard common to all the US services and used widely for the specification of oils.g. Has over 17000 standards. Field number 49 is of importance in aviation as it relates to “Aircraft and space vehicle engineering”. shape of head and material) National Aerospace Standard (UK Based) International Standards Organisation.

Engineering Drawings • Types of Drawings – Working / Production Drawing • Detail Drawings • Installation Drawings • Assembly Drawings – Sectional Drawings – Block Diagrams – Logic Flow Charts – Schematic Diagram – Exploded View .

Detail Drawing • A detail drawing supplies all the information required to construct a part. including all dimensions. materials and type of finish. .

Assembly Drawing • After individual parts are fabricated. they are assembled into various sub-assemblies with the aid of an assembly drawing. • The assembly drawing depicts the relationship between two or more parts. .

Installation Drawing . This type of drawing shows the general arrangement or position of parts with respect to an aircraft and provides the information needed to install them.• All sub-assemblies are brought together in an installation drawing.

Sectional Drawings • When it is necessary to show the internal construction or shape of a part a sectional drawing is used. – The removed section. . – The complete section – The half section. • There are four types of Sectional Drawing: – The revolved section.

Sectional Drawings .

• This consists of individual blocks that represent several components. Block Diagrams . block diagrams enhance this process. • Since most of the maintenance needed on complex systems consists of identifying a malfunctioning subassembly and replacing it.

Logic Flowcharts • A logic flowchart represents the mechanical. . electrical or electronic action of a system without expressing construction or engineering information.

Schematic Diagrams
• A schematic diagram is used to illustrate a principle of operation and therefore does not show parts as they actually appear or function.

Pictorial Diagrams
• Pilot’s handbooks and some training manuals often use pictorial diagrams of electrical and hydraulic systems. • In pictorial diagrams, pictures of components are used instead of the conventional symbols found in schematic diagrams.

Exploded View
• Often used in Illustrated parts catalogues. • All parts are typically in their relative positions and expanded outward. Each part is identified by both is physical appearance or by its name or by a reference number that is coded to the parts list.

.Drawing Information • The information that the engineer adds to the drawing form is located in five general areas: – Indexing Pane – Revision Block – Title Block – Picture or Drawing Area – Additional Information.

Title Block • A title block is generally printed in the lower right hand corner of every aircraft drawing. It contains the information necessary to manufacture the illustrated part. C. • It should contain – – – – – – – Title of Drawing Size (E.G A. B. D) Drawing Number Scale Page or Sheet Number Signatures Application or Section Number .

5 x 11 inches B = 11 x 17 inches C = 17 x 22 inches D = 22 x 34 inches E = 34 x 44 inches R = 36 x 42 inches • Example: – Wing Rib-Sta.111. aft cargo compartment .9 Lining instl-left sidewall.Title Block • Title – To establish the concept of the item. – What is it used for? – Where is it used? – What does it do? • Size – – – – – – A = 8.

Title Block • Drawing Number – A drawing number or part number is assigned to each drawing. The part carries the number through-out its entire life. • Scale – The scale indicates the size of the drawing. .

this space on the title block is used for the page number of the book. • The draftsman. as with wiring diagrams.Title Block • Page or Sheet – When drawings are assembled into a book. • The person who released the drawing. • The person who checked the drawing. . • The designer • The person who approved the design. • Signatures – For the people responsible for all aspects of the part.

Revision Block • Most aircraft drawings have a revision block in the upper right hand corner. . • Prior to making a part you should check the revision block to verify you have the latest revision.

• Drawing Change Notice (DCN) – Is a record of changes which have already been made to the drawing. • Drawing Departure Authorisation (DDA) – Used to authorise the shop to vary from the requirements of the drwg .Revisions • Advance Drawing Change Notice (ADCN) – Used to give advance notification that the drawing will be changed in the near future.

• Aircraft drawings are usually 36 to 42 inches wide and several feet long. hence it is often difficult to find detailed views without a system of location. • A 12 inch grid is used. • Section C-7 for example would be used to identify a part of the drawing Zones .

.Methods of Illustration • • • • Orthographic Projection Auxiliary Drawings Isometric Drawings Oblique Drawings.

.Orthographic Projection • In orthographic projection there are six possible views from which an object can be drawn. • The most common views in aircraft drawings are top. front and right side.

. it is sometimes necessary to see a view that is not at a 90 degree angle to the face of an object.Auxiliary Drawings • Although an orthographic drawing can represent up to 6 different views.

Isometric Drawing • This is a projection of a 3D object on 2D paper. • With this type of drawing the objected is rotated so that 3 sides are visible .

.Oblique Drawing • An oblique drawing is an isometric drawing with one object face parallel to the drawing plane. • The depth axis of the oblique is typically any convenient angle and most often 30 degrees.

• These are not generally used in aircraft drawings .Perspective Drawings • These are used when you need to see an object similar to the way the human eye sees it.

which are the max differences between the extreme allowable dimensions. • Tolerances. between two extension lines. • Dimensions are placed in the break of a dimension line. the dimensions are placed outside the dimension line arrows. if the lines are too close together. because the paper shrinks or stretches in use. may be shown with the dimension. • Some tolerances are shown for the entire drawing and are indicated by the way the dimension is written . or.Dimensions and Tolerances • Dimensions should never be scaled from an aircraft drawing.

Example What is the vertical distance from the top of the fitting and the bottom of the lowest 15/64” hole. Answer = 2.367” .

.Aircraft Location Systems • Frame Numbers – The hoop frames on an aircraft are numbered sequentially. • Panel Numbers – Panels may be numbered odd and even numbers indicating left or right side of the aircraft and may be in allocated blocks i. 200 series upper wing surface or 600 series the flight deck panels.e. usually beginning at the front bulkhead.

Zonal System • The zonal location system (specified in ATA 100) relies on giving each zone on the aircraft an identification number. The string / frame station system relies on numbering all the frames and all the stringers .
