attitude indicator
Attitude Indicator
  • Displays an aircrafts pitch and bank with a gyro stabilized bar which remains parallel to the horizon.
turn coordinator
Turn Coordinator
  • Detects motion about the roll and yaw axes of an aircraft by utilizing the property of gyroscopic precession.
heading indicator
Heading Indicator
  • A gyro that gives a more stable indication of an aircrafts heading than a magnetic compass.
airspeed indicator
Airspeed Indicator
  • A pressure gauge that is calibrated to convert the difference betweenimpact (or ram) air pressure due to an aircrafts motion andthe local static air pressure into a reading of velocity thought the air mass.
altimeter
Altimeter
  • Tells you your altitude by measuring air pressure.
vertical speed indicator
Vertical Speed Indicator
  • Measures the rate of change of air pressure as the plane climbs or descends.
