Attitude Indicator/PFC Cirrus Yoke

Recommended Posts

The AI in the DC6B is offset from the vertical by ~3'.  The Cirrus yoke shows a red bar during roll calibration; the data for the roll ranges from -.9 to .9 which is similar to the other axes.  Any suggestions as to why the AI is offset and the yoke apparent calibration problem? Is there a correlation?  Thanks--

Can you describe this differently? The only sense I can make of this is that, when your yoke is level, the AI is showing you're 3 degrees above the horizon. This is normal for most aircraft, particularly of this size.

 

In any case, the AI is able to be re-indexed by using the roll wheel at the bottom of the gauge, should you choose to have the AI level with the horizon.

Understood--The AI roll "pointer' is offset from the vertical by 3'.  The yoke is centered/level.  Although the roll deflections are nominal, the yoke does NOT move (I have been using the first situation at KPDX).  Thanks,

Thanks. We're checking on this.

 

EDIT: Fixed for next version.
