Aforaviation

Meet Shivam and Sumit two very enthusiastic avgeeks. They've done their Bachelors of Technology in Aeronautical Engineering and run “A for Aviation”. They’re here with us on AviatorsBuzz, to share their expertise on all things Aviation as their constant motive has always been to share as much knowledge with the aviation community as possible.

What Is A Radar?

Radar is an electronic system that measures the range and bearing of objects by transmitting an electromagnetic pulse at the object and listening for the echo. Acronym for "Radio Detection And Ranging". ...

VHF Omni-Directional Range (VOR)

The Very High-Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VOR) is a type of short-range radio navigation system for aircraft, to determine its position and stay on course by receiving radio signals transmitted by a network...

Distance Measuring Equipment

DME is defined as a combination of ground and airborne equipment which gives a continuous distance-from-station readout by measuring the time-lapse of a signal transmitted by the aircraft to the station and...

Vertical Speed Indicator

Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI), also known as the Rate of Climb and Descent Indicator (RCDI), is an instrument that indicates the rate of climb or descent of an aircraft. The VSI uses...

Radio Altimeter

A Radio Altimeter is an airborne electronic device capable of measuring the height of the aircraft above terrain immediately below the aircraft. Also known as Radar Altimeter (RA), Electronic Altimeter, or Reflection...

What Is Critical Mach Number Of An Aircraft?

Critical Mach Number of an aircraft is the lowest Mach number at which the airflow over some point of the aircraft reaches the speed of sound, but does not exceed it. At...

What Is an Aerofoil?

Aerofoil is a shape capable of producing lift with relatively high efficiency as it passes through the air. Leading-edge is a part of an aerofoil that hits the air particles first Trailing...

MLS – Microwave Landing System

The MLS provides precision navigation guidance for the exact alignment and descent of aircraft on the approach to a runway. It provides azimuth, elevation, and distance. It employs 5 GHz transmitters at...
