Overview of your flight screen

Here we show you what you see on your screen during flight. See <<todo>> to configure the units and formats used by the different indicators.

For your navigation, icons on the compass rose indicate bearings relative to your direction of flight. Your direction of flight is always at the very top of this display.

List of indicators:

  • Altitude gives your altitude, either MSL (QNH) or Flight Level (QNE).
  • Numeric vario gives your vertical speed, either in m/s or fpm.
  • Ground speed is given in kilometres per hour, knots, or miles per hour.
  • The compass rose shows your course by indicating the relative position of True North with the symbol N. You are always flying toward the top of the compass rose.
  • The graphic vario shows your vertical speed (climb or sink) in m/s (ranging from -10 m/s to +10 m/s) or fpm (ranging from -2000 fpm to 2000 fpm, multiply scale by 200).
  • Graphic vario display
