View Full Version : Instruments checks on ground

18th Oct 2012, 12:02
Hi all ! These days I had some questions from my instructor concerning the checks of instruments while on ground. I've been looking for the answers but no results...

The questions are :

1) what is the maximum difference between the QFU and your compass when lining up for take off ?

2) the max difference between your compass and your heading on the HSI ?

3) In IFR, 2 altimeters are required, what is the max difference between both altimeters readings ?

Does someone can help me ? And most of all, does someone can give the source of the information found ? For example Jeppesen, ATPL books, ICAO annexes or whatever !

You're on guard...I mean aviation history and nostalgia. You need to post in a flight-instruction or private-flying forum.

I'd try to help anyway, but we don't use any of those funny Q-things in the U.S.
