Working with Airspeed Indicators in Aircraft. This instrument provides the pilot with an indication of the airspeed past his or her airplane.

Working with Airspeed Indicators in Aircraft

It is an indication of airspeed or dynamic pressure not corrected for any error like non standard temperature or pressure. It is called IAS or indicated airspeed. All other aircraft speeds are derived from this IAS, such as TAS (True airspeed) and GS, Ground speed. Follow the next link for more detailed information on these important aircraft speeds. On this page we are going to take a look inside this airspeed indicator and see how it operates and what limitations and possible errors these instruments have and of which the pilot should be aware of during his day to day flying. Indicated Airspeed Operation As already explained in our previous article on the aircraft pitot static system, the airspeed indicator is connected to the static and dynamic port.

Airplanes - Aviation - Aircraft- Aircraft Photos & News. Calculating Density Altitude with a Pencil. We all know that as density altitude increases, there is a corresponding decrease in the power delivered by our airplane’s engine and the effectiveness of our propeller.

Calculating Density Altitude with a Pencil

For a typical non-turbocharged light single-engine airplane, this can result in a takeoff roll that’s 25 percent longer for every 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level. The most dangerous combination of conditions are a heavy load, unfavorable wind, high temperature, high airport elevation and high humidity. With so many variables to consider, how are we supposed to know when our density altitude is too great for the conditions? The answer is, we need to calculate our density altitude, which we can then compare against the performance information in our aircraft manual.

We could use an E6B computer or an iPad app to calculate density altitude, but what if we accidentally left the flight computer and iPad at home? There sure is, and it’s a formula we as pilots should probably commit to memory. Easy! Aviation Weather Map.

Update: this driver bug has since been fixed – see here.

AMD Drivers Are Still Dead

If your X-Plane screen looks like this with HDR on, you may be running the new Catalyst 13-12 drivers. If you can, back up to the Catalyst 13-9 drivers to get back HDR mode. 727 Series 200Adv. In this package you will get the 727-200Advanced, which is 20 feet longer then the 100, and holds the most passengers.

727 Series 200Adv

The 727 entered service in the early days of airline service during the 1960s, in a time before advanced flight computers, and many other systems seen in airliners today. With 1832 build between 1963 and 1984, the 727 held the record for most built for a long time before the 737 surpassed it. The 727 was a common sight at airports for more then 30 years and now you can experience what it was like to fly in the beginnings of the jet age, and the hay-day of air travel. Features: Boeing 757 Professional - Promo. CIVA Navigation System. Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System.

CIVA Navigation System

Nicknamed "CIVA", An inertial navigation system (INS) is a navigation aid that uses a computer, motion sensors and gyroscopes to continuously calculate via dead reckoning the position, orientation, and velocity of a the aircraft without the need for external references. it was easily the most popular inertial navigation system used before wide adoption of GPS became possible in the 90's. Xflightplan. Virtual Dispatching Solutions. XPlane Scenery Add-Ons. X-Plane 10 HD Mesh Scenery v2. The “X-Plane 10 HD Scenery Mesh v2″ scenery is completely free to download and free to use.

I call it Donationware because if you like the scenery, you are invited to donate for it: A “Known issues” section has been added (and what and how will / can be fixed). I have added a new subtopic on this page describing the difference between HD Mesh Scenery v2 and photoscenery, because obviously still a lot of users are confused! [XPGFS] NOAA Weather.

The Cessna Caravan was big to begin with; now it is gargantuan. The Caravan is the largest single-engine airplane ever produced by Cessna. Comparing it to a Cessna 182 is like standing a pro basketball player next to a jockey — the 182 is lost in the Caravan's shadow. The latest version, the Grand Caravan, is even more imposing.
