Abstract

Topic: Austro AE300 Engine as a platform for student research

Introduction:

The Austro AE300 Diesel engine is a complex computer controlled engine that the Aviation Maintenance Science Department has acquired for the purpose of introducing students to the topic of Full Authority Digital Engine Control or FADEC as it is referred to. This particular engine serves the purpose for meeting the learning objectives of the AMS 376 Powerplant Line Maintenance course. The Austro Engine has served the purpose of being a test bed for student research. Research was conducted on the use of tablet computers to better train the concepts and complex operation of the engine. The findings were that the overall student feedback on this type of training was far superior to previous training methods on similar complex engine systems.

History:

Ignite has previously funded students to receive factory training from the manufacture in Austria. This funded training allowed the student participants to master the concepts of the complex engine. The benefits today are, that an undergraduate student teaching assistant is directly training the complex system to current students within the university. Another participant is now currently employed with Embry Riddle's Fleet Maintenance department, due to a part of Ignites funded training.

Possibilities:

The Austro AE300 does serve the purpose of being a possible future test bed for undergraduate student research. One possible topic is, the effect biofuel on engine performance. Another topic is how we can better train complex engine systems using tablet computers that directly interface with the engines computer. Co-curricular training is possible for student pilots who want to gain a better understanding of FADEC operations.
