Tech Time Articles

Capital Avionics has been an active member of the Aircraft Electronics Association since the 1980s and the founder, Al Ingle, noticed in 1998 that a technical article appearing monthly in the trade magazine Avionics News, had been discontinued. He offered to continue the articles encompassing the entire avionics industry – from fundamentals, to accepted indusry practices and flightline maintenance.

The articles appeared in the magazine over a ten year period. Archived here are those most relevant to the services performed today.
