Algorithm of Analytical Bank-And-Climb Gyro Unit Without a Heading Gyro


An analytical bank-and-climb gyro unit supplies the flight crew with information about aircraft angular movement relative to the local vertical. This article describes the particular principles of unit operation providing a step by step explanation of principles governing the operation of the analytical bank-and-climb gyro unit and provides a kinematic scheme of the unit. The article also gives an insight into the occurrence of errors in the bank-and-climb gyro unit as well as explains their significance.
