PA31T Piper Cheyenne I, IA, II and IIXL Aircraft Operation Manual

For many years the Cheyenne series of business aircraft was one of the most successful for Piper. It started in the mid sixties, when Piper decided to reconstruct its pressurized model „Navajo” to accommodate propeller turbines as propulsion. On August 29th 1969 the prototype took off for his maiden flight, but it took almost another five years until the first production aircraft went into service. The control surfaces and flight controls had to be reconstructed several times, because the higher speeds were a strain to the cell. Furthermore, a flooding of Pipers production facility in Lock Haven delayed deliveries.

737 Flight Manual

The purpose of this manual is to provide flight crews with a document which serves both as a training aid and as an inflight tool for handling emergency and abnormal situations. 
Included in this introduction is an overview of the organization and procedures of Sections 1 through 5 and a detailed discussion of the standard formatting devices used in developing all normal and non-normal checklists.
Flight crews are expected to be familiar with these formatting devices and to be prepared to operate under these guidelines on the line and during simulator training.

Cessna 182 Q Skyline II Carenado Manual

We realize that flightsim enthusiasts are often keen on learning more about the real aircraft behind. To meet this need, here is a full description of the actual Cessna 182 Q instrument panel, slightly modified by Carenado in order to make the most of available screen real estate. Wherever constrained by the need to align all panel components within a rectangle, we have attempted to suggest instrument position based on the logic of the description below.

A320 Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) Guide

An Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) is a flight deck instrument display system in which the display technology used is electronic rather than electromechanical. EFIS normally consists of a primary flight display (PFD), multi-function display (MFD) and Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) display. Although cathode ray tube (CRT) displays were used at first, liquid crystal displays (LCD) are now more common.

The Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary

The Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary is an authoritative and accessible reference useful to scholars and enthusiasts alike. This dictionary is an essential tool for people who must read and understand technical content regarding the aerospace industry and specific aircraft. The Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary is also an ideal reference for the engineering and physics student encountering a subject replete with technical jargon and acronyms. The Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary is based on three previous editions of the popular and definitive Janes Aerospace Dictionary by Bill Gunston, OBE, FRaes. For this new edition, Gunston, one of the most widely read and respected aviation writers of all time, added over 15,000 new terms, mostly acronyms, in this carefully updated volume. Terms used in the dictionary reflect the diverse and international nature of the aerospace industry. Also included are brief explanations of aerospace materials and organizations.

737 Technical Guide

This book takes you right from the original concept that lead Boeing to design the 737 through its 40 year evolution, in language that is easily understood. It looks at each system in turn, supported by over 500 high resolution photographs, diagrams and schematics, placing each system component in context. It collates information from many different sources and combines over 15 years of the authors own flying experiences to lead the reader through the 737 from radome to tail-cone. The book goes beyond the flight deck on a grand tour of the worlds' most prolific airliner in a way that is as relevant to the type rating candidate as it is to a company Fleet Technical Captain. To complete the picture, the book also contains Pilots notes, a detailed guide to airtesting and the accident history of the type, which serve to make this book the most practical and comprehensive technical guide to the 737 available today.

A330 Flight Controls

In fly-by-wire systems, the cockpit controls generate electronic signals that are interpreted by a computer system and are then converted into outputs that drive the hydraulic system connected to the flight surfaces. Engine control is also mediated by the FCS computers.

Sportys VOR Simulator

Our VOR*SIM™ makes mastering VOR navigation simple and inexpensive. Our software is an interactive, graphical VOR simulator that allows the user to drag the aircraft anywhere, rotate the OBS knob and locate aircraft positions exactly as it would be done in the aircraft. The software also allows the user to switch between traditional or original versions of the OBS instrument. Other features include an OBS demonstration, DME tool, VOR transmitter demonstration and explanation, and a complete VOR history and explanation assistant. There is also a "Find Aircraft" feature, which randomly positions the aircraft, then hides it from view so that the user can locate its position. This software was developed by a veteran FAA Certified Ground Instructor and is in use in FAA Part 141 Ground School courses. (PC only).

A320 PIC Operating Manual

This tutorial will not cover the various recommended settings within Flight Simulator since that info already exists in the documents provided with PICA320. Obviously every airline has its own SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) but the following checklists should work generally. This tutorial will describe a sample flight where we hopefully will go through most of the functionality of the A320PIC. I will not go into any abnormal checklists. As usual nowadays you will find a lot of strange abbreviations. The Airbusdriver web-site mentioned below has an acronym list that should help. Feel free to edit this tutorial into shorter, easier to read lists once you are comfortable with the ins and outs of how the A320 works.
