HSI Bank Angles

Jamie4590 Guest

I'm trying to learn how to identify my bank angle by looking at the top of the HSI reading. It has a moveable arrow that points to different fixed markers as the plane banks. Can anyone help?

I'm not too sure what you mean. When you turn the fixed point in the middle stays still while the heading rose turns and you face a new heading. The speed at which this happens depends on the amount of yaw and aileron but I don't know how you can identify your specific bank angle just from watching how fast it moves Dont Know

If you could explain a bit more, it'd be helpful 😉

Do you mean the markers at the top of the horizon??

I think you mean Attitude indicator, sometimes called a ADI. The lines indicate 10, 20, 30 degrees, the dot is 45 degrees. The last line is 60 degrees. It's varies a little with other styles of indicators but the general concept is the same. 🙂
