Horizontal Situation Indicator

The HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) is a backup for the HSD (Horizontal Situation Display) of the MFDs and waypoints on the HUD. The HIS provides information about course, bearing, distance to TACAN stations, navigation fix-points, landingstrips, tankers or waypoints. This navigation aid is shown as "birdsview". The A/C is allways located at the center. The bearings and positions are based on a 360 compass. The HSI together with the INSTR MODE Switch on the INSTR-Panel allow the selection of TACAN or NAV data.

This indicator is located in the middle of the center console.
