If further change is required, an additional correction of one-half bar normally corrects any deviation from desired altitude. Army aviators flight Value.

This page was last edited on 15 Septemberat Manhal timed turn is when the clock and turn-and-slip indicator are used to change a heading a definite number of degrees in a given time. Figures andpageillustrate instrument indications for straight-and-level flight at normal cruise and during the transition from normal cruise to slow cruise.
Archived from the original txt on 25 May The airspeed indicator presents an indirect indication of the pitch attitude. The first gyroscopic aircraft instrument was the turn-and-bank indicator. The appropriate operator or maintenance manual should be referenced to confirm which limit is accurate. Returning to straight-and-level flight can occur by stopping the turn and leveling-off, leveling-off and stopping ,anual turn, or simultaneously leveling-off and stopping the turn. When the indicator points to the head of the course, the arrow shows the course selected, if properly intercepted and flown, will take the aircraft to the chosen facility.
Figure fielx the way that nonstandard temperature mnual an altimeter. Supporting instruments fkeld up and supplement information shown on primary instruments. If altitude is off by more than feet, the correction should be correspondingly greater but should never exceed the optimum rate of climb or descent for the airplane at a given airspeed and configuration.
Instantaneous vertical speed indicators IVSIs Figurepage differ from VSI construction by having two accelerometer-actuated air pumps that sense an upward or downward pitch of the aircraft and instantaneously creating a pressure differential.
As a result, their thickness changes as air pressure changes. Retrieved 22 August This setting causes a difference of 30 feet between actual and displayed altitudes Pitch, bank, and power principles related to straight-and-level flight apply while performing fielv turns. An altimeter has an adjustable barometric scale that allows the aviator to set the reference pressure from which the altitude is measured.

ITO is a composite visual and instrument takeoff when conditions permit and is not be confused with a hooded takeoff. Mechanism of an airspeed indicator The primary instrument is one that gives the most pertinent information for a particular maneuver and is usually held at a constant indication.
Adjust the pitch attitude to maintain altitude. Note any up or down trend of the needle from zero and apply a very light corrective elevator pressure. Believing that the aircraft is in a nose-high attitude, the aviator reacts with forward pressure without noting that a low power setting is the cause of the airspeed discrepancy; increase cross-check speed to include all relevant instrument indications before making a control response.
When the gyro reaches operating speed, enough heat is generated to ensure effective lubrication at altitudes where the outside air temperature is extremely low. Chapter 1 Figure For training purposes, the latter factor can normally be disregarded.
Control instruments of a UH To find true heading when magnetic heading is known, the equation in the previous example is written in reverse. If the error is less than that amount, use a slight cyclic climb or descent.
When losing altitude, raise the pitch attitude and, if necessary, add power; conversely, when gaining altitude, lower the pitch attitude and, if necessary, reduce power. Approach procedure without an operating control tower The apparent lag in airspeed indications with pitch changes varies greatly among different airplanes and is due to the time required for the airplane to accelerate or decelerate when the pitch attitude is changed.
Chapter 1 one installed in a UH Figurewhich in addition to the typical items listed above, has pitch and roll command bars and a collective position pointer. From this sensor data, the FMC computes and continually updates the aircraft present position throughout the flight.
The bank angle should never exceed the number of degrees to be turned. Precession is the resultant action or deflection of a spinning rotor when a deflective force is applied to its rim. Failure to do so leads to erratic aircraft maneuvers, which will cause additional fluctuations and lag in the performance instruments.
If a slow, smooth pitch change is initiated, the needle moves with minimum lag to a point of deflection corresponding to the extent of the pitch change and then stabilizes as the aerodynamic forces are balanced in the climb or descent. These two pressures are taken from the pitot-static system. Flight Instruments and Systems When the helicopter is about level, the heading indicator is primary for bank as in straight-and-level flight.
