Feature Article: Fitting The Hood
The hood should be fitted prior to engine start. Note that
the attitude indicator has both a wings level and a level index
mark at its top. The 10, 20, and 30 degree bank marks have been
pointed out during Dutch-rolls and banks. A plane will not turn
if the wings are level. This means that whenever the heading indicator
is fixed on a heading the plane is not turning and wings can be
considered level. Knowing this will enable you to perform even
stalls under the hood. When the attitude indicator is at level,
heading will be constant. Confirm this with the heading indicator.
The turn coordinator has the ability to show both the direction
of the turn and markings that index the 2 minute standard rate
turn. The vertical speed indicator will either indicate false
or excessive movement under abrupt control input and may have
up to a 12 second lag. The altimeter also may lag. The accuracy
of the instruments is proportional to the smoothness of any change.
The use of sound indexes acquired from VFR flight will help clue
you in on airspeeds and changes.
