Electronic Flight Instruments

Go back to the main Advanced Avionics Page.

This category introduces the electronic flight instrument systems available with advanced avionics. You will see how electronic flight instrument systems integrate many individual instruments into a single presentation called a primary flight display (PFD). Since all flight instruments are combined in one integrated electronic flight instrument system, a number of enhancements to conventional flight instruments are now possible. In addition to learning to interpret the primary flight and navigation instruments, you must learn to recognize failures of the underlying instrument systems based on the indications you see in the cockpit. You must also maintain proficiency in using the backup/standby instruments that are still part of every advanced cockpit.
