Discord

by kaltokri (de|en) - Monday, 28 February 2022, 6:53 PM
 

Discord ist eine Software mit der man Server zu bestimmten Themen einrichten kann und dort Text-Kanäle (Chat-Räume) und Sprach-Kanäle (für Audio-Konferenzen ala TeamSpeak) anbieten kann. Auch die Übertragung des eigenen Bilschirms (Streaming) ist möglich. Da man die Discord-App für alle möglichen Betriebsysteme und auch als App für Smartphones installieren kann, ist es für unsere Belange sehr gut geeignet.

Wenn du bei der OpenFlightSchool mitmachen möchtest (egal ob als Schüler oder als Tutor) dann solltest du unserem Discord-Server beitreten. Um das zu tun klicke einfach auf folgenden Link:

ECS

by Rufuz (de) - Saturday, 30 April 2022, 6:51 PM
 

(AH-64D Apache) Environmental Control System

The ECS provides crewmember comfort through ventilation, heating, and air conditioning. Ventilation is provided by pilot and CPG gaspers, which can be opened to admit outside air into the cockpit. The ECS also powers ventilation fans that provide forced air exchange between the cockpits and for avionics cooling.

FEEL

by VBF-12_Gosling (en) - Friday, 25 September 2020, 6:30 PM
 

Fuel, Engine, Electrics, Location

A method of ensuring the aircraft has sufficient fuel for the task, is operating correctly and that you know where you are. 

All Aircraft

FUEL - Check the quantity against the expected quantity at that stage of the flight.  Consider this as an amount up or down and compare that to the wind you have experienced so far.  Also ensure that the fuel tanks are in balance and correct with fuel transfer if needed.  

ENGINE - Check the engine instruments for any fluctuations or unusual readings.  

ELECTRICS - Check the generator is providing charge to the battery.  

LOCATION - Check your location is as you expect and you know where the nearest air station is in the case of an emergency.  

Modern Aircraft

The additional systems of a modern aircraft often require a little more than just the above FEEL.  Consider this as FEEL+ and can include things like:

HYDRAULICS - Check the Temperature and Pressure

OXYGEN - Check the contents, flow and pressure

CABIN - Check the Pressurisation and Temperature

Combat Situations

Again, Combat situations may require further checks, see Fence In and Fence Out

Repetitive

These checks should be conducted about every 20 mins (as a minimum after each 30 mins) or after each change of altitude or turning point of a navigation exercise.
