The intelligent sensing of an aircraft’s engine parameters is provided by the First Limit Indicator, which supplies the pilot with pertinent information about the engines’ operation based on the phase of flight.
The First Limit Indicator enables pilots to view the appropriate engine instrument data that is most applicable for a particular aspect of an aircraft’s operation. As an example, certain engine instrumentation data is more relevant when starting an engine, and will be made more evident during this phase. Other data will be displayed more prominently when pilots need to be informed of other pertinent information – such as critical power settings or when operating limits are exceeded.
Aircraft and helicopters.
First Limit Indicator display technology significantly improves safety through reduced pilot workload, improved cockpit situational awareness and more rapid identification of engine operating parameters. It takes full advantage of flat-panel glass cockpits, which eliminates individual engine instruments, while assimilating data so that pilots do not have the challenge of monitoring multiple indicators.
