IPAS

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

(AH-64D Apache) Integrated Pressurized Air System

The IPAS provides pressurized air to aircraft pneumatic systems. Bleed air is drawn from two ports: a high-pressure port is exclusively used to pressurize the hydraulic systems, and a low-pressure port is used by all other consumers. Low-pressure air is used by the engine air turbine starters, fuel boost and transfer pumps, anti-ice system, ice detection probe, nitrogen inerting unit, vapor cycle cooling system, and environmental control system. IPAS bleed air can be provided by one or both engines, the APU, or an external source such as an AGPU.

JTAC

by kaltokri (de|en) - Wednesday, 6 January 2021, 3:16 PM
 

Die Abkürzung JTAC steht für Joint Terminal Attack Controller und wird auf deutsch als Fliegerleitoffizier bezeichnet. Eine alternative Benennung ist FAC (Forward Air Control bzw. Forward Air Controller)

Er begleitet Bodentruppen und koordiniert den Einsatz von Hubschraubern oder Flugzeugen. Manche JTAC Einheiten sind in der Lage das Ziel mittels Laser und/oder Rauch zu markieren oder die Koordinaten zu ermitteln und mitzuteilen. Aber auch Informationen zur Umgebung, umliegende Bedrohungen, An- und Abflugsrichtung, Lage verbündeter Einheiten und einzusetzende Bewaffnung kann ein JTAC dem Piloten übermitteln. Der sogenannte 9-Liner ist eine standarisierte Form um Missverständnisse zu vermeiden.

Lookout, Attitude, Instruments

A method of maintaining a good Lookout whilst ensuring the aircraft maintain the desired altitude, heading and speed.  

LOOKOUT - This is completed in two stages, beginning with the Right hemisphere.  Look as deep into your 5 o’clock as you can and scan fully up and down whilst progressing you Lookout back to the ahead.  

ATTITUDE - Whilst looking ahead assess you aircraft‘s attitude to the horizon.  Ensure it remain where you desired.  

INSTRUMENTS - Check that this attitude is maintain your chosen flight path by checking the instruments:

  • Attitude Indicator (AI) - Check the AI matches your attitude.  
  • Altimeter - Either Barometric Altimeter (BarAlt) or Radar Altimeter (RadAlt) - Are you on height.
  • Rate of Climb or Decent Indicator (RCDI) - Is it reading zero.
  • Airspeed Indicator (ASI) - Are you on your chosen speed.  
  • Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI - Compass) - Are you on heading.

Limitation, Operation, Indication

A method of ensuring aircraft limitations are not exceeded when changing aircraft configuration.  

LIMITATION - Before operating any control that will change the configuration of the aircraft like the Flaps, check that the aircraft is within the limitations for that configuration change.  

OPERTION - Select the new configuration.  

INDICATION - Check that the configuration change has been successful by the control indicator.  

E.g. If the Landing Gear speed limitation is 175 kts the process is:

  • Speed below 175
  • Select Gear Down
  • Gear Travelling .... Three Greens

Max Drift

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

Max Drift

A method of assessing the effect of wind on the aircraft drift from track.  

MAX DRIFT - The maximum drift an aircraft will suffer from a wind directly abeam the flight path.  This is estimated by taking the windspeed and dividing it by the aircraft’s speed in nm / minute.  

E.g. An aircraft flying at 240 kts is covering 4 nm / minute.  With a wind from directly abeam with a speed of 20 kts the aircraft will suffer a drift of 5˚.  

20 / 4 = 5
