Well our original aircraft had it and we removed it. I think that having GPS installed was a primary driver for that decision, although I don't know that for sure.

Our "newer" aircraft don't even...

You're very welcome. I'm just happy that some people find those presentations useful. Besides my coworkers, I mean. Although they don't read them for fun like you guys do. ;)

The item pictured is a visual ice detector. It's nothing more than a probe marked with 5mm paint stripes so the pilot can visually identify ice buildup if the automatic system isn't working.

The -10 is incorrect. While I love the TSMO manuals, they do occasionally misinterpret the Russian manuals. Stabilization duty is when the pilot's feet are OFF the pedals and the yaw channel is...

There were still AH-1S's after 1988.

After 1988 an S and an F are two different aircraft.

It is currently after 1988.

As much as I'd love a Chinook in-game, it would be an absolute travesty if the Apache and Black Hawk didn't come first. But I could be talked down to just having the Cobra first. ;)

As per the flight manual (the real one) the maximum altitude for starting the APU is 4000m. Take from that what you will.

That's not true at all. I apologize for being so blunt. The relationship between the pedal locations and the corresponding tail rotor pitch will always be the same. Likewise, different atmospheric...

The red button above the radio on the pedestal sounds like the on/off button for the tail rotor pitch limiter which is not the autopilot yaw channel.

The yaw channel has 100% authority. The other...

This.



Are you talking about the tail rotor pitch limit system (SPUU-52)? If so, that system has absolutely nothing at all to do with the autopilot system whatsoever.

Okay, I'm lying. They...
