Art of the Helicopter

"The idea and dynamics of helicopter flight are advanced and for the uninitiated, tricky. yet during this booklet, British helicopter pilot and technical writer John Watkinson units out to simplify the innovations, and clarify in lay-man's phrases how a helicopter operates. utilizing images and over four hundred diagrams, all features of rotary flight are coated together with the historical past of rotor-craft, helicopter dynamics, rotors, tails, strength crops and regulate.

22 Application of magnetic indicators and flow lines. 23 Pillar light assemblies. assembly. The body is threaded externally for attachment to the panel and has a hole running through its length to accommodate a cable which connects the positive supply to the centre contact. The circuit through the lamp is completed by a ground tag to connect to the negative cable. Light is distributed through a red filter and an aperture in the lamp housing. The shape of the aperture distributes a sector of light which extends downwards over an arc of approximately 90" to a depth slightly less than 2 in from the mounting point.

In the field of aircraft instruments there are very few applications of the straight scale and pointer displays, as they are not suitable for the monitoring of the majority of quantities to be measured. However, they do possess characteristics which can contribute to the saving of panel space and improved observational accuracy, particularly where the problems of grouping and monitoring a large number of engine instruments is concerned.

In addition to the foregoing digital readouts, LED'S can also be adopted for circular scale or vertical scale displays, thereby eliminating the use of conventional pointers or moving tapes. In this case, large numbers of individual diodes (900 would be typical) are arranged in groups to form illuminated bars. 16. Signals from the appropriate sensing elements (thermocouples in the example shown) are first converted into digital form and read into a digital computer using microprocessors. The computer then applies the appropriate scale factors, establishes the required illumination pattern, and then produces an output signal to the display such that a small column of illuminated bars moves up or down the scale and registers against the scale.
