Primary Flight Display

Flight Instruments on the PFD (Primary Flight Display) represent a ton of information. In order to better understand this information and for a quick reference, I have listed them below:

Attitude Indicator

Horizon Line

    • Yellow triangle represents the nose
    • Yellow lines represent the wings
    • Blue above the horizon line is the sky
    • Brown below the horizon line is the ground.

Horizontal White Lines

    • Show degrees up and degrees down in
    • Big lines are in 10 degree increments
    • Smaller white lines in between representing 5 degree increments

Semi-Circular Scale at the TopĀ 

    • Degrees of Roll
    • Bottom triangle points on the degree of roll which show you your bank
    • Increments of 10-20-30-45-60
