Presentation Transcript

  1. Powered FlightSyllabus #4 CAP O-Rides Squadron 85

  2. Basic Navigation Instruments • Explain the use of basic navigation instruments (clock, altimeter, airspeed indicator and magnetic compass). Explain the inherent errors of the magnetic compass

  3. Pitot / Static System • Explain the pitot / static system and its relationship to the airspeed indicator, altimeter, and vertical velocity indicator

  4. Flight Plans • Discuss the importance of flight plans and demonstrate filing a flight plan

  5. Altitude • Explain the difference between absolute altitude (AGL), true altitude (MSL), and pressure altitude (PA).


  6. Altimeter • Demonstrate how to read the altimeter

  7. Speed • Demonstrate how to read the airspeed indicator and discuss the difference between indicated airspeed, true airspeed and ground speed

  8. Attitude and Airspeed • Point out how attitude and airspeed are related

  9. Vertical Speed • Demonstrate how shallow climbs and descents affect the vertical velocity indicator and the airspeed indicator

  10. Magnetic Turns • Demonstrate turns using the magnetic compass. Discuss compass turning errors: variation, deviation, magnetic dip, and oscillation error
