turbojet and propeller engines.

3. Cylinder head and exhaust gas temperature measurement. Anti-ice systems.

Fire annunciators.

4. Torque, fuel used and fuel flow and engine vibration measurement.

5. Complex system for engine parameters measurement.

6. Fuel system, measurement of total and critical amount of fuel.

7. Barometrical and inertial measurement of altitude. Altimeters and their

types. Standard atmosphere.

8. Aerometrical flight measurement, theory, Speedometer construction

9. Vertical speed measurement, mach-number measurement, machmeters and

variometer construction.

10. Aerometric data computer, process of data calculation, aerometrical
