⏩Side Slip Angle (SSA) probe or vane, provides the sideslip angle.
▶A slip is an aerodynamic state where an aircraft is moving somewhat sideways as well as forward relative to the oncoming airflow or relative wind. In other words, for a conventional aircraft, the nose will be pointing in the opposite direction to the bank of the wing(s). The aircraft is not in coordinated flight and therefore is flying inefficiently.
▶The sideslip angle, also called angle of sideslip (AOS, AoS), is a term used in fluid dynamics and aerodynamics and aviation. It relates to the rotation of the aircraft centerline from the relative wind. In flight dynamics it is given the shorthand notation and is usually assigned to be "positive" when the relative wind is coming from the right of the nose of the airplane.
▶The sideslip angle is essentially the directional angle of attack of the airplane. It is the primary parameter in directional stability considerations.
▶In vehicle dynamics, side slip angle is defined as the angle made by the velocity vector to longitudinal axis of the vehicle at the center of gravity in an instantaneous frame. As the lateral acceleration increases during cornering, the side slip angle decreases. Thus at very high speed turns and small turning radius, there is a high lateral acceleration and could be a negative value.
▶There are other, specialized circumstances where slips can be useful in aviation. For example, during aerial photography, a slip can lower one side of the aircraft to allow ground photos to be taken through a side window. Pilots will also use a slip to land in icing conditions if the front windshield has been entirely iced over—by landing slightly sideways, the pilot is able to see the runway through the aircraft's side window. Slips also play a role in aerobatics and aerial combat. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

A primary flight display or PFD is
modern aircraft instrument dedicated to
flight information. Much like multi-function
displays, primary flight displays are built
around an LCD or CRT display device.
Representations of older six pack or
"steam gauge" instruments are combined
on one compact display, simplifying
pilot workflow and streamlining cockpit
1) Autopilot speed, sync with actual or set
4) Attitude indicator
5) Indicated airspeed in Mach (yes, this is
combined image but the value's were real)
6)Double bearing HSI (blue/white) with
course deviation bar (green) and heading
7)Set radial of selected NAV, change with
standby HSI or Autopilot
8)Bearing type (NAV, ADF, FMS) in colour
of bearing arrow
9) Windspeed and direction relative to
airplane (METAR is much, much more
11) Autopilot altitude.change with MFD knob, sync with actual or set with autopilot
12)Single cue or cross pointer (cross
pointer is not allowed in Europe)
13)Indicated altitude. From 500
feet AGL and lower the "ladder" will also
14)Glidescope pointer (dot above centre =
flying below glidescope)
15)Decision height (can only be set on
16)Altimeter correction setting, QNH
17)Distance to NAV1 or NAV2, indication
of NAV type (VOR, ILS, FMS)
18)Vertical speed indicator
19) Ground speed (or TTG or ET)
If I cannot demonstrate 6 months of maintenance experience, do I lose my licence?
The answer is no. You only lose your rights to exercise your privileges of certifying staff or support staff. The licence remains valid.
