The word “avionics” is simply a combination of two terms, namely aviation and electronics. These electronic systems are used on devices like aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionics includes hundreds of systems that are well fitted in the aircraft for better individual functioning. In addition, they also include navigation, communication, display, and management systems. Depending on the avionic device in question, such parts and controls can either be really easy to understand or can be complicated. The below-mentioned devices are essential instruments in an aircraft that enable the pilot to maintain spatial orientation during the flight.
As the name suggests, the airspeed indicator allows the pilot to determine the aircraft's speed. Airspeed indications are a differential measurement between dynamic pressure and static pressures. The airspeed indicator, or ASI, is a pitot-static instrument that displays the aircraft's speed in knots or other common values.
An altimeter measures the altitude of the aircraft in terms of feet. It is a barometer used to measure the vertical distance to the surface below, which is essential for a pilot to maintain an assigned altitude while flying. Generally, the altimeter exists to measure height above sea level according to aviation standards. Other altimeters show the height above ground or different height types.
The attitude indicator (AI), which was initially known as the artificial horizon indicator, is an instrument used to reference an aircraft's pitch or bank when climbing or undertaking a turn. These indicators are used to display the direction of an aircraft in regard to its roll (the angle of the wings) and pitch (the angle of the nose).
The heading indicator, also known as a directional gyro, is an instrument that helps a pilot in navigation by determining the direction the aircraft is moving in. When this instrument is set correctly, these indicators indicate the heading and indirect bank. Heading indicators use a gyroscope that remains fixed to establish an inertial platform.
The turn coordinator is an instrument that displays the rate of turn and information about the roll. Such indicators are developed from the bank and turn indicators. These coordinators provide their specific reading with the help of a gyroscope mounted at a 30-degree angle, and they are generally electrically or vacuum driven.
Vertical Speed Indicator
The vertical speed indicator, or VSI, is an instrument that measures the rate of pressure changes and displays the rate of climb and descent for the pilot. Such valuable information helps the pilot in determining the trends of an aircraft. In addition, it reacts before the altimeter senses changes, which allows the pilot to quickly address issues.
