Aircraft flight instruments are one of the most important tools for pilots, allowing them to monitor various flight conditions that are needed for safe and efficient operations. While instruments are advanced and useful devices for flight, they are nothing without a trained pilot to digest their data for the means of flight management. In this blog, we will discuss the various instrument installations and markings that are common to aircraft, allowing you to have a better idea of how readings may be conducted.

Pressure gauges are devices that monitor performance parameters in terms of internal pressure. In a water system or tank, for instance, the water and air that runs through them is pressurized, and a pressure gauge measures the force of the pressure in the water or air to ensure that it is working within the proper parameters. Pressure that is too high or too low can indicate a serious mechanical issue in the device or system, and if left unchecked can cause serious damage.

An automatic identification system (AIS) receives information broadcast by other vessels and base stations that are equipped with an AIS transponder and transmits static and dynamic information from its own vessel. The system uses two data-specific channels in VHF to receive and transmit the information. There are various types of data that an AIS is capable of transmitting, these include: MMSI coding, GPS antenna positioning, speed over ground (SOG), course over ground (COG), and more. These transponders are responsible for allowing vessels to see and be seen by other marine vehicles equipped with AIS— they act as a preventative locating tool.
