Straight and Level Flight – Bank Control – Heading Indicator

in Airplane Basic Flight Maneuvers - Electronic Flight Display

The heading indicator is the large black box with a white number that indicates the magnetic heading of the aircraft. [Figure 7-54] The aircraft heading is displayed to the nearest degree. When this number begins to change, the pilot should be aware that straight flight is no longer being achieved.
