CHAPTER TITLE: Helicopter Attitude Instrument Flying


Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the IFH Chapter 8. They are listed in the order they are found in the Instrument Flying Handbook.


AUDIO RECORDING


FIGURE 8-1

A radial scan pattern of the flight instruments enables the helicopter pilot to fully comprehend the condition and direction of the helicopter.


FIGURE 8-2

The flight instruments for pitch control are the airspeed indicator, attitude indicator, altimeter, and vertical speed indicator.


FIGURE 8-3

The initial pitch correction at normal cruise is one bar width or less.


FIGURE 8-4

The flight instruments used for bank control are the attitude, heading, and turn indicators.


FIGURE 8-5

The banking scale at the top of the attitude indicator indicates varying degrees of bank. In this example, the helicopter is banked approximately 15° to the right.


FIGURE 8-6

Coordinated flight is indicated by centering of the ball.


FIGURE 8-7

Flight instrument indications in straight-and-level flight with power increasing.


FIGURE 8-8

Flight instrument indications in straight-and-level flight with power decreasing.


FIGURE 8-9

Flight instrument indications in straight-and-level flight at normal cruise speed.


FIGURE 8-10

Flight instrument indications in straight-and-level flight with airspeed decreasing.


FIGURE 8-11

Flight instrument indications during climb entry for a constant-airspeed climb.


FIGURE 8-12

Flight instrument indications in a stabilized constant-airspeed climb.


FIGURE 8-13

Flight instrument indications in a stabilized constant-rate climb.


FIGURE 8-14

Flight instrument indications in a standard-rate turn to the left.


FIGURE 8-15

Flight instrument indications for a stabilized left climbing turn at a constant airspeed.


FIGURE 8-16

Flight instrument indications during an instrument takeoff.


FIGURE 8-17

PFD indications during straight-and-level flight.


FIGURE 8-18

PFD indications during a nose-low pitch attitude in a right turn.
