Aircraft Instruments and Integrated Systems provides a wealth of unique information covering all aspects of operating principles and constructional features of the instrumentation and integrated systems required for the flight handling and navigation of aircraft, and also for the performance monitoring of their relevant power plants.

The text is liberally illustrated with schematic diagrams, color and black and white photographs and a number of tables and appendices for easy reference. All the instruments and systems detailed are representative of those installed in a range of civil aircraft types currently in service. The operatingprinciples of digital computer techniques and electronic displays are emphasized. Essay-type exercises and multi-choice questions relevant to subjects covered by each chapter, will enable readers to conduct 'self-tests'.
