The SeaHawk’s complex flight stabilisation system - the Attitude Gyroscope Control Assembly (AGCA) consists of a displacement gyroscope, electronic control amplifier, and compass system controllers.
There are two displacement gyroscopes which can also supply heading information direct to the pilot’s Bearing-Distance-Heading-Indicators (BDHI’s)
At start up the displacement gyroscope spins and begins to align itself to the surface of the earth via information supplied by the SeaHawk’s A24G Compass Controller and the Remote Compass Transmitter. Once having established a stable and aligned platform the system provides the aircraft a base line reference from which aircraft pitch, roll and heading can be measured. This information is then sent to the electronic control amplifier for processing and distribution to the aircraft’s main flight control systems.
The system is constantly making flight adjustments to ensure stable and controlled flight with pitch and roll information received and processed by the Electronic Control Amplifier (ECA) and signals are generated to change pitch, roll and heading torques of the helicopters rotors.
The SeaHawk’s A24G Gyro Compass Controller provides continual synchronisation display to the flight deck together with setting heading information and orientation as well as generating latitude correction signals and switching between manual and slave control settings.
This Gyro Compass Controller is in excellent condition with all knobs, switches and dials in working order.
This Seahawk Helicopter Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
