CHAPTER TITLE: Emergency Operations


Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the IFH Chapter 11. They are listed in the order they are found in the Instrument Flying Handbook.


AUDIO RECORDING


FIGURE 11-1

St. Elmo’s Fire is harmless but may affect both communication and navigation radios, especially the lower frequencies such as those used on the automatic direction finding (ADF).


FIGURE 11-2

One example of a static wick installed on aircraft control surface to bleed off static charges built up during flight. This prevents static buildup and St. Elmo’s fire by allowing the static electricity to dissipate harmlessly.


FIGURE 11-3

G1000 PFD display in normal mode and in the reversionary mode activated upon system failure.


FIGURE 11-4

Ammeter (left) and loadmeter (right).


FIGURE 11-5

Double rocker switch seen on many aircraft.


FIGURE 11-6

Note the double rocker switch and the standby battery switch in this aircraft. The standby battery must be armed to work correctly; arming should be done prior to departure.


FIGURE 11-7

Emergency instrumentation available to the pilot on electronic flight instrumented aircraft.


FIGURE 11-8

Vacuum failure.


FIGURE 11-9

The default soft key menu that is displayed on the PFD contains a “NRST” (Nearest Airport) soft key. Pressing this soft key opens a text box that displays the nearest 25 airports.


FIGURE 11-10

An enlargement of the box shown in the lower right of Figure 11-9. Note that KGNV would be flashing.


FIGURE 11-11

Information shown on the nearest airport page.


FIGURE 11-12

Information shown on the additional information page that will aid the pilot in making a more informed decision about which airport to choose when diverting.


FIGURE 11-13

The MFD is another means of viewing the nearest airports.


FIGURE 11-14

Page groups. As the FMS outer knob is rotated, the current page group is indicated by highlighting the specific group indicator. Notice that the MAP page group is highlighted.


FIGURE 11-15

The page group of nearest airports has been selected.


FIGURE 11-16

The four soft keys at the bottom of the MFD are airport (A), runway (B), frequency (C), and approach (D).


FIGURE 11-17

The area surrounding the aircraft for coverage using TIS.


FIGURE 11-18

A typical display on aircraft MFD when using TIS.
