Don't mind me. Figured out what I was missing. Guess who (stupidly) assumed that turn rate was just a function of roll angle? Duh.

Follow up ADI question:

This ADI also has turn rate indication (standard rate, half rate "dog house" vertical bars with a moving "underline" indicator). I can't figure out how the mechanism works,...

Now you have encouraged me to think about it, the answer seems obvious. Without your prompt I'd still be scratching my sorry, balding head. Many thanks for your help! :)

Good shout Jim - I will need to look beyond UK eventually.



I don't doubt that the subject of whether or not QFE is a good thing is very interesting, as is Denver's elevation. It's just not the...

My mistake chevvron - apologies. Could you point me to where on the CAA site I should be getting these data? I've been using the AIP on the NATS site (section 2.2 part 3 - which I see is "Aerodrome...

Ahh. If only they'd drawn that diagram on the article I read about QFF. What I understand from that is that the ACTUAL atmosphere on any day doesn't exhibit that nice round 0.12hPa/m gradient. Thank...

Question No, not that QFE/QNH debate.

I think I'm looking for consistency and making it clear that I accept that it doesn't exist. Anything beyond that is I believe called "transference".

Thanks Chevvron and Fl1ingfrog for contributing to the subject under discussion.
"Overdue action" sounds very much like an alerting service. Civil ATC does this too ;).

Hi Jan. It's not so much a UK peculiarity as a busy aerodrome peculiarity. Interesting to note that it is seemingly not used where you fly.

Actually, no; The username is a hobby thing - P94 was an iconic aircraft. Second guessing military humour, I'd take a guess that it's a personal pre-flight anti-g preparation?



Good advice TOO....
