Help!
Looking for educational video with regards to avionics.

Hey guys,

I'm looking for an avionics video that demonstrates the following related content for a lecture:

Glass cockpit: Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) - Eg: Boeing 777
Cockpit display system: Primary Flight Display (PFD)/ Navigational Display (ND)/ Engine & Warning Display (E/WD) & System Display (SD)
Flight Control System
Engine Control System
Electrical Power System
Navigation System: Flight Management System (FMS), GPS, ADF
Safety and Surveillance System: Traffic Alert & Collision Avoidance System (TCAS)
Communications and Information System: VHF COM, HF COM, SAT COM, Aircraft Comm and Report System (ACARS), Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR)/FDR

If you guys have any videos with regards to the above content, do link me up on the site where I can view/purchase the content.

Thanks a lot! Your help will be appreciated!

Necessary credits will be given when used for educational purposes.

Regards!

Sounds like you're looking for ground school course material for a transport (airliner). If this is the case, you're looking at spending a lot of money. There are printed study guides out there and instrument/system posters, but they're more fot serving as classroom aids.

I haven't seen it all, but I've never seen any printed material or videos that are geared towards a layman's introduction of an transport category aircraft.

If you conduct a Google serach of "B777 study guide", you'll find some media (printed/video) but again, they'll be geared towards someone that is already a pilot.

All the video's I have seen on those subjects where all directed towards maintenance, or operation of the systems. So would be rather dry for presentation material.

Do you have a link or any resource I can take a look at?

Dull and dry material is okay, it'll be sort of an explanation and discuss session.



Thanks for your prompt reply!

It was when I was at United Airlines. It might be worth asking for a tour of an airlines facility. Could find some good contacts. I don't know of them releasing video's, but might be worth a try.
