ELECTROMECHANICAL FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS
ELECTROMECHANICAL FLIGHT INSTRUMENTSDuring the last decade, there has been an electronics revolution in the aviation industry. This revolution has had a great impact on the design and operation of the instrument systems found on modern aircraft. Instruments that are mechanically driven with pitot and/or static pressure inputs are still used on many aircraft. For example, most light aircraft still operate using the traditional mechanical instruments. On the other hand, large transport-category aircraft require so much instrumentation that it has become almost impossible to fit all the necessary mechanical instruments in view of the pilot. Also, the newest light aircraft take advantage of digital technologies to save weight and improve flight safety. To simplify the instrument panel…
