NIU

by Rufuz (de) - Saturday, 30 April 2022, 6:52 PM
 

(AH-64D Apache) Nitrogen Inerting Unit

The fuel cells are inerted using nitrogen to reduce the risk of fire. The NIU is completely self-contained and automatic. It uses aircraft power and pressurized air and generates an inerted mix containing around 99% nitrogen. This inerted gas is used to pressurize the internal cells. It is also routed to the IAFS during fuel transfer.

Outside Air Temperature

The temperature of the air around the aircraft.  

Low temperature causes the air to be more dense and so appear as if the aircraft is flying lower when assessed on a Barometric Altimeter.  

Average Air Temperature at sea level for the ICAO Standard Atmosphere is 15°

PAAT

Progressively Adjust the Attitude and Trim

PROGRESSIVELY ADJUST the ATTITUDE - As an aircraft accelerates from a Climbing speed to a Straight and Level speed the lift initially generated by the initial attitude of attack increases as the speed increase.  If attention is not paid to this the aircraft will begin to climb.  The attitude will need to be progressively reduced as the speed increases.  

and TRIM - At each stage of attitude change the trim will need to be adjusted to ensure the aircraft maintain the new attitude with minimal input from you.

Power, Attitude, Trim

A method of changing airspeed whilst maintaining level flight, or levelling off from a descent.  

POWER - Adjust the throttle to give the expected required power for the new Straight and Level speed.  

ATTITUDE - Adjust the aircraft in pitch to the expected attitude for that speed.  

TRIM - Trim any stick forces to a minimum so that the aircraft maintains the new attitude with minimal attention from you.

PB

by kaltokri (de|en) - Wednesday, 26 August 2020, 9:23 AM
 


Push Button

PB's in the F/A-18C designate the buttons around the AMPCD and DDI's (20 each). The screens show the current options of the buttons next to the PB's. When pressed, the screen either switches to the specified page, or the activated option is framed to indicate that it is selected or active. If there is nothing next to the PB, it has no function at the moment.

In our courses we name the buttons after their function. In other sources they are numbered consecutively (from the bottom left corner clockwise e.g: PB 19 is in the bottom row of the 2nd from the left).
