Default Re: Doubt regarding Aircraft compass swing training

The Compass swing word brings the images of a time-consuming task . I think you are familiar with this task . It is like

→ Engines Running

→ Sitting Inside the Air Craft

→ Air Conditioner Off ..

So it does not disrupt the Magnetic compass , as you taxi all around the compass rose. Relying on co-workers accuracy in lining the aircraft up with the line marked on the compass role .

Usually in the following cases one can perform a compass swing actions :

several instances when a compass swing must be performed . They generally include :

> After a Cockpit modification or major replacement involving ferrous metal

> Whenever the accuracy of the compass is suspected

> After aircraft has passed through a several electrical storm and after a lightning strike

> Whenever a compass has been subjected to a shock

> When the flux valves are replaced

> And after an aircraft has been parked on the one heading for more than a year .

You need to study all above the above mentioned ones one by one to get full details . Of cours training will be given in the coaching .

You should remove any magnetic or ferrous items from person .Use only non - magnetic tools when adjusting the compass .

To say , Mechanics typically use one of two methods to swing the compass on an aircraft . So I think you may get certified from “ Hindustan Aeronautics Limited “
Do you have any question? or have anything to say?
