ATTITUDE, TURN AND SLIP, AND ACCELEROMETER SYSTEMS
As student aviators, it is necessary for you to become familiar with the T-34C attitude, turn and
slip, and accelerometer indicating systems. You must also become familiar with the location,
operation, and purpose of various components to be able to operate and interpret these systems
effectively. Understanding the operation and limitations of these systems is essential to safe
visual and instrument navigation.
