Indicator, Flight Path Deviation
The course deviation indicator has a rotating compass card behind a fixed aircraft silhouette and lubber line. A marker and digital counter may be used to set desired course against the compass card and a heading marker is provided. Linked with the course marker and occupying the centre of the dial is a left/right needle which provides simple VOR/ILS deviation information. It rotates with the course marker to give a semi-pictorial indication of the relationship of the aircraft to a VOR or ILS beam. A normal glide-slope deviation needle remains horizontally aligned. The pilot thus has a "straight" plan-position indicator and a computing director instrument.
The Ref. No. 6TK4543009 is on the instrument which was probably built by Elliotts under licence from Bendix. The Instrument was repaired at Rochester in July 2005.
