ATA Chapter Titles (System Identification)

ATA Codes as used on the EMG-6

This page provides the definitions of each chapter relating to a particular section of the aircraft. We are using a modified version of the (JASC) and (ATA) code table. This coding system helped keep track of where information is located for particular components on the aircraft.  This is simply an easy way to organize all of the information related to the aircraft.

All of the Aircraft Part Numbering System is based on this Code.
For Example Part Number 53-20-52  shown at the right

53 Fuselage Assembly

    -20 Fuselage Boom Sub Assembly

         -52 Fuselage Boom Sub Assembly Bulkhead #2

When you see references  to these  numbers you immediately are able to Identify their relationship to the rest of the aircraft.  The codes are base on the basic ATA system but have been modified to better correspond to the EMG-6 project.
