I safed up the armament switch and set auto-pilot to altitude hold
An additional autopilot upgrade, featuring Heading/NAV hold, Altitude Hold
and a Go-Around mode, was announced at Farnborough in July.
Suddenly, our automatic flight control system (AFCS) kicked off, which disabled our altitude hold
The Air Force can begin to phase out the Pave Low fleet, but it has funded the altitude hold
hover stabilization technology for the Pave Hawk rescue fleet as it awaits a new combat search-and-rescue helicopter.
5 miles, the pilot depressed the collective trim altitude hold
This task order, when coupled with MTC's recent award to produce and install an Altitude Hold
and Hover Stabilization system on these same helicopters is very significant.
Our radar-altimeter altitude hold
had disengaged without us noticing.
Maj Neaderhiser turned the aircraft away from the target area, turned off the altitude hold
, set max range airspeed, and reduced the throttle setting in an attempt to lower engine temperatures.
6 million effort over two and one half years to produce and install an Altitude Hold
and Hover Stabilization (AHHS) system on MH-53M helicopters.
The DFC90 has all the standard vertical and lateral modes of operation of a turbine-class autopilot system, including Flight Director (FD), Altitude Hold
(ALT), Airspeed Hold (IAS), Vertical Speed Hold (VS), Heading (HDG), and Navigation (NAV, APPR, LOC/GS, GPSS).
The autopilot was on altitude hold
, and all were comfortably confident that we were at a carefully computed safe altitude.
