Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

A Head-up display (HUD) could be (de)activated in FlightGear with the h-key. To change the sharpeness, press Shift + H.

Functions

Aileron

Aileron

Altitude

Altitude

Current altitude relating to sea-level in feet (1 feet = 30 cm).

Elevation

Current altitude above ground in feet. Related to the location of the radio altimeter therefore it's not zero if the aircraft is on the ground.
No picture (yet), it's the next scale to the left of 'altitude'.

Elevator

Elevator

Pitch

Heading

Heading

Direction of the aircraft related to the geographical North pole.

Location

Location

To change the coordinates-system, go to Autopilot > Set Lat/Lon-format.

Rudder

Speed

Airspeed

Currend speed related to the ambient air in kts (1 kts = 1.852 km/h).

Thrust

Thrust

G-load

Autopilot

If autopilot is activ the direction of the next waypoint is displayed as well as the next two and the last waypoint of the 'Route manger's list.
No picture (yet) and not displayed on the related pictures at all.
