The complicated Avionics instruction manual is a brand new e-book designed to supply normal aviation clients with complete details on complex avionics gear to be had in technically complicated airplane. This guide introduces the pilot to flight operations in plane with the newest built-in “glass cockpit” complicated avionics platforms. This instruction manual is designed as a technical reference for pilots who function airplane with complicated avionics platforms. even if flying a traditional plane that includes a worldwide positioning approach (GPS) navigation receiver or a brand new plane with the most recent built-in “glass cockpit” complex avionics procedure, you might want to locate this guide useful in getting all started. the coming of latest expertise to common aviation airplane has generated seen alterations in 3 components: details, automation, and ideas. Pilots now have an extraordinary volume of knowledge on hand at their fingertips. digital flight tools use leading edge options to figure out airplane perspective, pace, and altitude, offering a wealth of data in a single or extra built-in displays. a collection of cockpit info structures presents pilots with facts approximately plane place, deliberate direction, engine well-being and function, in addition to surrounding climate, site visitors, and terrain. complex avionics structures can immediately practice many projects that pilots and navigators formerly did by way of hand. for instance, a space navigation (RNAV) or flight administration procedure (FMS) unit accepts a listing of issues that outline a flight course, and immediately plays lots of the path, distance, time, and gas calculations. as soon as en course, the FMS or RNAV unit can consistently song the location of the plane with admire to the flight path, and demonstrate the path, time, and distance ultimate to every aspect alongside the deliberate course. An autopilot is in a position to immediately guidance the airplane alongside the path that has been entered within the FMS or RNAV process. complicated avionics practice many capabilities and exchange the navigator and pilot in so much approaches. notwithstanding, with the potential for failure in any given approach, the pilot has to be capable of practice the required capabilities within the occasion of an apparatus failure. Pilot skill to accomplish within the occasion of kit failure(s) ability ultimate present and expert in attaining the guide initiatives, holding regulate of the airplane manually (referring merely to standby or backup instrumentation), and adhering to the air site visitors regulate (ATC) clearance bought or asked. Pilots of contemporary complex avionics plane needs to research and perform backup approaches to keep up their talents and data. possibility administration rules require the flight staff to regularly have a backup or substitute plan, and/or break out direction. complicated avionics plane relieve pilots of a lot of the minute-to-minute tedium of daily flights, yet call for even more preliminary and recurrent education to continue the talents and information essential to reply safely to mess ups and emergencies. The FMS or RNAV unit and autopilot supply the pilot quite a few tools of airplane operation. Pilots can practice the navigational projects themselves and manually keep watch over the plane, or decide to automate either one of those projects and suppose a managerial position because the structures practice their tasks. equally, info structures now on hand within the cockpit offer many innovations for acquiring information correct to the flight. complex avionics platforms current 3 very important studying demanding situations as you advance skillability: 1. how you can function complex avionics structures; 2. Which complex avionics structures to take advantage of and whilst; three. How complicated avionics platforms have an effect on the pilot and how the pilot flies

Descent ratio table. Cruising Altitude (ft) – Descent Altitude (ft) 11,000 ft – 3,000 ft 1,000 ft/min X 180 NM/hr 60 (min/hr) Groundspeed (NM/hr) X Descent Rate (ft/min) = 8,000 ft 1,000 ft/min 60 (min/hr) X = NM required 3 NM/min = 8 X 3 NM = 24 NM Figure 3-29. Descent formula. along the route of flight in case VOR navigation is required at any time. The airway that leads to the ECA VOR lists a minimum en route altitude (MEA) of 3,000 feet, which is the clearance altitude. Calculating Descents with the FMS Building a descent with an FMS follows the familiar process of entering the basics of the descent into the system, letting the system do the math, and then reviewing what the system has produced.

Plan and fly a descent to a crossing restriction. 4. Recognize and correct deviations from a planned descent path, and determine which factor changed. Intercept And Track Course Intercepting and Tracking a Different Course to the Active Waypoint Figure 3-37 illustrates a common situation. Air traffic control instructs you to fly to a waypoint via an inbound course different from the desired track calculated by the FMS. In the example in Figure 3-37, you are en route to SUNOL intersection. The FMS has calculated a desired track of 060 degrees, but ATC has instructed you to fly a heading of 080 degrees to intercept a 009-degree course to SUNOL.

Fly-by and fly-over waypoints. Waypoint Sequencing The third service performed by sequencing mode is waypoint sequencing. Once the aircraft reaches the active waypoint, the FMS automatically makes the next waypoint in the flight plan sequence the new active waypoint. Waypoint sequencing is illustrated in Figure 3-20. The waypoint sequencing function makes the next waypoint in the flight plan sequence the new active waypoint. 0nm MENU LEG APT VOR NDB INT USR ACT NAV 1 FPL SET AUX MSG OBS ALT NRST D CLR ENT PULL SCAN Figure 3-20.
