Hamilton Airshow 2012

Every airshow transcends time because the idea of flying is so fascinating that the passage of time cannot make an airplane outdated or irrelevant. On the contrary, time makes it more interesting, more elegant, its role and relevance amplified.

Attitude Director Indicator

The ADI presents primary aircraft attitude indication as well as pitch and roll information to the flight crew. In addition, other ancillary data is displayed, like ground speed, autopilot, auto-throttle, and flight director modes, etc. The ADI with conjunction with the Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) presents complete aircraft attitude and position information to the pilot.

From the book “Boeing 757/767”, series Modern Civil Aircraft, by Philip Birtles, first published in 1987.

Vehicle Sketch Pad VSP OpenVSP NASA Aircraft Models Availabl

OpenVSP is a parametric aircraft geometry tool. OpenVSP allows the user to create a 3D model of an aircraft defined by common engineering parameters. This model can be processed into formats suitable for engineering analysis.

The predecessors to OpenVSP have been developed by J.R. Gloudemans and others for NASA since the early 1990’s. On January 10 2012, OpenVSP was released as an open source project under the NASA Open Source Agreement (NOSA) version 1.3.
