Flight instruments are the instruments in the cockpit of an aircraft that provide the pilot with data about the flight situation of that aircraft, such as altitude , airspeed , vertical speed , heading and much more other crucial information in flight. They improve safety by allowing the pilot to fly the aircraft in level flight, and make turns, without a reference outside the aircraft such as the horizon.

University, Mr. Henderson has earned the follow-ing degrees: A. Degree in Aircraft Maintenance,B. Henderson acquired his interest in aviation fromhis father Floyd B. Henderson whose flying andmaintenance experience on aircraft began in Henderson's interest in aviation history isevidenced by a collection of books andphotographs of early aviation dating back to theWorld War I era. Basic InstrumentsChapter one begins with a study of the generalrequirements for aircraft instruments and their in-stallation.
The categories and types of instrumentsare covered before beginning a study of specificinstruments. The instruments examined in chapter one includepitot-static system instruments, gyro instruments,compass systems and electronic instruments. Why Study Instruments? It is important for aircraft technicians to studyaircraft instruments so that they will be able toinspect, install and troubleshoot them properly.
There are also occasions when the technician willbe running the aircraft's engines or other systemsand will have to use the instruments himself. Manyinstruments are a part of a larger system and itis necessary to understand the interrelationshipsbetween the various parts of the system. All certificated aircraft have instruments, al-though in the case of hot air balloons and gliders,. Thenumber and variety of instruments has increasedover the years so that a small single engine airplaneof today has more instruments and more sophis-ticated instruments than airliners had in the sor earlier.
Figure shows the instrument panelof a Piper Cub from the early s with its sixbasic instruments. This airplane was a small twoplace airplane which did not have an electrical sys-tem, so all the instruments used mechanical meansof operation. The instrument panel shown in figure is that of a modern single engine airplaneequipped for "blind flying" or IFR flight operations.
This airplane has many more instruments and sys-tems that increase the safety of flight and makeit a more efficient means of transportation.
Themost important instruments are placed directly infront of the pilot and the radios are grouped togetherin the middle for easy access to the controls.
The most common and important types of aircraftinstruments and avionics systems will be describedin this book along with some FAA requirementsfor testing and installation. The categories foraircraft instruments and the basic FAA require-ments will be covered first.
Instrument CategoriesThe instruments found on different types of aircrafthave considerable variety, but they can be categorizedaccording to either how they work or what kindsof information they present to the flight crew. Categories According to ApplicationPowerplant Instruments These give infor-mation related to the aircraft's powerplant orpowerplants.
Flight and Navigation Instruments These giveinformation such as altitude, speed etc. Systems Instruments These concern air-craft systems such as electrical, hydraulic,pressurization, bleed air systems etc. Electrical and Electronic Instruments Thisgroup has seen the most change in recentyears due to advances in digital technologyand other related fields. While there is not a standard placement for allthe instruments that might be found on eithera small or large aircraft, some of the most im-portant instruments will have a standard layoutdirectly in front of the pilot.
This makes it easierfor the pilot to scan the important instrumentsand it makes it easier to transition to a differenttype of airplane. Aircraft instruments are manufactured in a num-ber of standard sizes. This mainly applies to theround instruments since some other types comein a wide variety of sizes. The standard sizes forround instruments are:. See Full Reader. Aircraft Instruments and Avionics - Max F.

One of the challenges in testing different homebuilt aircraft and determining their performance characteristics is the variations and problems that you find with instrumentation systems. A static leak in an RV type airplane, for instance, will likely make the airspeed read about 8 to 10 knots fast at cruise speeds. Used in conjunction with an iPad or other tablet, it can be used by instructors to debrief a flight with their students, with the ability to look at flight paths and altitudes as well as airspeeds, and of course, if you have a simple airplane you can just mount the iPad as an instrument panel and go fly! We decided that trying to explain this in the security line was just not an exciting prospect, and decided to pack in the checked luggage, which must have worked, because it showed up with us at our home airport with no nasty notes included from security in the bag. Installing the BOM on a homebuilt is pretty simple, although it takes just a little bit of thought to put it in clean air with a place that is easy to attach.
Since its commencement in , TGH has developed into a diversified aerospace business, capable of repairing a comprehensive mix of aircraft instruments, avionics, and fuel management systems for military, corporate, commercial, and general aviation classes of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. TGH also offers customers a broad range of aircraft instruments and accessories for new outright and new exchange sales.

Aircraft Instrument Systems. Aircraft instruments are the means of supplying the pilot with information about the aircraft and its operation could be useful and lead to safer flight. The ability to capture and convey all of the information a pilot may want, in an accurate, easily understood manner, has been a challenge throughout the history of aviation. As the range of desired information has grown, so too have the size and complexity of modern aircraft, thus expanding even further the need to inform the flight crew without sensory overload or overcluttering the cockpit. As a result, the old flat panel in the front of the cockpit with various individual instruments attached to it has evolved into a sophisticated computer-controlled digital interface with flat-panel display screens and prioritized messaging.
