What are some of your instrument scanning procedures for controling your aircraft in IMC when different control instruments or instrument support systems fail.
Wes Beard on Jan 02, 2013
If the control instrument or attitude indicator fails in flight you are going to have to pickup your instrument scan. Instead of using the attitude indicator to enter and establish a level turn you are going to have to cross-check both the turn coordinator and altimeter for the same information.
By this time, your instructor should have gone over power settings and the effect of those setting on what the instruments are telling you. Remember that attitude + power = performance. If the power is set according for the phase of flight you are in, it will be much easier to control the airplane.
The other advice I have for you is to trim, trim and trim some more. It will reduce your workload considerably.
