Directional indicators and Artificial Horizon

Page 7 instruments

RAF Directional indicators and Artificial Horizons are generic instruments, the aircraft shown in our adds did use the parts shown but they may of coarse been used in a different type of aircraft . If you are not sure what part you require then please contact us and I will do my best to advise you on the most suitable purchase. The Directional indicator and  Artificial Horizons was produced in various different designs and were used in the Blind flying panel. The BFP contains instruments which show the flying characteristics, speed and orientation of the aircraft to the Pilot and allow as its name suggests the aircraft to fly blind using the instruments only. These instruments were used in practically every wartime RAF aircraft Bombers and fighters and the basic design remained the same regardless of the aircrafts role or performance.
