  • The ECAM (Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring) system is made up of two primary components, two SDAC’s (System Data Acquisition Concentrators) and two FWC’s (Flight Warning Computers). A loss of only one SDAC or only one FWC will not result in any loss of function. The second computer can handle all functions alone. The SDAC’s receive data from sensors and will send signals to 3 DMC’s (Display Management Computer) which generate the screen image. The SDAC’s also send signals to the FWC. The FWC will generate various warning/caution messages.The E/WD (Engine/Warning Display) is the display that shows normal engine readings and ECAM messages. The SD (System Display) is directly below the E/WD and normally shows system pages or status.
  • Cdi is a indicator used to display the aircraft lateral position.

    2. 2. NAVIGATION GUIDANCE • Navigation guidance is an integral and critically important aspect of flying. If a pilot does not know where he is at all times while airborne, or cannot quickly determine his/her aircraft position in the air, then such a aircraft will be misguided and may leads to disaster. • Navigation depended on pilot’s ability to use landmarks or dead reckoning.  What is DEAD RECKONING? • Dead reckoning (DR) is the process of calculating one's position by estimating the direction and distance travelled. ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd.

    9. 9. ATTITUDE INDICATOR  To show the aircraft's attitude relative to the horizon.  Also called as artificial horizon.  Shows whether wings are level or not and whether aircraft pitch up or down. ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 9
    10. 10. PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY contd…….. ATTITUDE INDICATOR Components and its operation.  ATTITUDE DISPLAY The aircraft attitude indication on the primary flight display provides pitch, roll, and yaw information supplied by the Attitude And Heading Reference System.  AIRCRAFT SYMBOL Aircraft symbol is a stationary representation of the aircraft.  HORIZON LINE Horizon line is the midpoint indication of aircraft attitude. With zero degrees of pitch and roll, the white horizontal line touches the apex of the aircraft symbol and passes through the center of the aircraft wing symbol. ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 10
    11. 11. PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY contd…….. ATTITUDE INDICATOR  SKY/GROUND DISPLAY Blue And Brown Images Provides A Visual Representation Of The Sky and ground with respect to the aircraft.  PITCH TAPE The pitch tape(scale) is fixed on the attitude sphere and moves with the horizon line. The scale has wide line markings every 10 degrees, medium line markings every 5 degrees and small line markings every 2.5 degrees.  ROLL SCALE AND POINTER At the top of the blue display is a roll scale and pointer. Max scale covered is 60 from level attitude. Roll pointer moves in reference to the center of the aircraft symbol and indicates aircraft roll angle. ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 11
    12. 12. PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY contd…….. ATTITUDE INDICATOR  SLIP/SKID INDICATOR The slip/skid indicator is a small rectangle located below the roll pointer. This indicates lateral acceleration on the ground. It turns with the roll pointer and moves laterally with respect to the base of the roll pointer.  DECLUTTER OF THE DISPLAY De-clutter is used to clear all nonessential information from the PFD during aircraft upset or unusual attitudes. When the pitch angle exceeds +30 or -20 degrees, or roll exceeds 65 degrees left or right, only the following information is displayed on PFD: Altitude, Airspeed, Attitude, Vertical speed, Heading indication ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 12
    13. 13. PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY contd…….. ALTIMETER  Also called as Altitude Meter  To indicate how high the aircraft is from sea level(altitude).  Measured in feet.  Measures height of the aircraft above a given pressure level  It works by measuring air pressure that enter through pitot-static system.  Air pressure increases and decreases as the aircraft descends and climbs ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd.
