The pilot develops a good part of his aeronautical life inside a flight deck. In it, the multiple parameters that allow the control of the aircraft are presented through different "indicators" or instruments.
From the primitive cabins, where each of these instruments presented a specific data or value, to the most modern flight cabins, where the concept of "glass cabin" allows for a simplification of the presentations used, the book aims to cover all the evolutionary development that has marked the history of Aviation, focusing mainly on those systems, equipment or instruments that continue to shape mainly the configuration of the cabins of the aircraft that are still operating today.
This book provides invaluable discussion on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling equipment glitches, partial-panel flying, and much more.
An introduction to the principles of aircraft digital and electronic systems, this book is written for anyone pursuing a career in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related aerospace engineering discipline. Suitable for those studying towards licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status as part of an EASA Part-66 or FAR-147 approved course, or those taking Aerospace Engineering City & Guilds modules, EDEXCEL National Units, EDEXCEL Higher National Units or a Degree in aircraft engineering.
