This manual clarifies the complex topics of turbine aircraft engines and all major power and airframe systems, subjects that are pertinent to flying bigger, faster, and more advanced aircraft. It includes discussions on high-speed aerodynamics, wake turbulence, coordinating multi-pilot crews, and navigating in high-altitude weather. You’ll be introduced to state-of-the-art cockpit instrumentation including flight management systems (FMS), global navigation (GPS), and headup guidance systems (HGS or HUD). You’ll also learn the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems including weather radar, ground proximity warning systems (GPWS) and predictive wind shear systems (PWS).
In addition to comprehensive descriptions of turbine aircraft engines and all major systems, this manual addresses high-speed aerodynamics, co-ordinating multiply crews, wake turbulence, and navigating in high altitude-weather. You'll also learn about the FMS, the Head-Up Guidance System, the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems including weather radar, and the ground proximity warning system. Complex topics are clarified with a wealth of illustrations and a multi-media CD ROM for Aircraft Systems. 261 Pages. Softback.
