As the performance capabilities of the aircraft are learned,
a pilot interprets the instrument indications appropriately
in terms of the attitude of the aircraft. If the pitch attitude
is to be determined, the airspeed indicator, altimeter, VSI,
and attitude indicator provide the necessary information. I
the bank attitude is to be determined, the heading indicator,
turn coordinator, and attitude indicator must be interpreted,
For each maneuver, learn what performance to expect and
the combination of instruments to be interpreted in order
to control aircraft attitude during the maneuver, it is the
two fundamental flight skills, instrument cross-check and
instrument interpretation, that provide the smooth and
seamless control, necessary for basic instrument flight as
discussed at the beginning of the chapter.
