"General Aviation Instrumentation, the Development of the Primary Flight 6 Pack"

Max Cortner, IEEE I&M Society President

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION:

Instruments are about providing information of use to the pilot in the most efficient and reliable way.  These 6 instruments evolved over 100 years of flight into a system providing 6 degree of freedom orienting information with multi-level redundancy.  The human factors principles and system safety principles continue to be examples in other complex real time human interaction systems.

 

TOUR:

After the presentation, we will be going "next door" to tour the Commemorative Air Force Hangar. 

ABOUT THE COMMEMORATIVE AIR FORCE 

The Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing was formed in 1971. The Minnesota Wing was the very first charter unit of the national headquarters wing of the Commemorative Air Force and operated as a maintenance support arm to help the CAF’s mission and its ever growing fleet of rare aircraft. The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans. Today, the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing is home to six aircraft, a large motor pool fleet, and a unique collection of World War II artifacts that are on display.The CAF MN Wing attends many airshows, parades, and other events throughout the year. They also host two hangar dances and several museum events at their facility.
