Magnetic CompassMagnetic Compass   

     The magnetic compass indicates the position of the aircraft relative to magnetic north. Usually is placed high on the top of the windshield in order to stay away from the airplane's electrical system to avoid, as far as possible, the interference from them and it works like any fluid element compass.

     The instrument is marked by lines , one for every 5 degrees while numbers appearing every 30. On the instrument’s panel, are appearing the four cardinal points, with the initials of the words North, South, West and East. Due to the difference of the magnetic field of the earth, the compass can show deviation from the geographical north, which is calculated by the relevant aeronautical charts of the area.
