This event will test each team's ability to troubleshoot aircraft component faults on a computer based format. The AMT/AME will be given an aircraft system's wire diagram and given a particular discrepancy.
The AMT/AME will then determine what the fault is and "replace" the suspect component.
For each component "replaced" a dollar value will be given for that part. The goal of this event is to display the skills needed to repair a given "squawk" with as little cost as possible in finding the damaged component. There will be anywhere from 14 to 20 different discrepancies to accomplish. Total time used and total dollar value of parts used to repair the system will be used for the scoring criteria. This event will be given 20 minutes to complete. CAE will provide the judge for this event.
