Week 4

G'day everybody,

The keyword of the 4th week was 'Instrumentation'. We talked a lot about gyroscopes, gimbals and precession. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession

The gyro's are used for the following instruments: DGI (directional gyro indicator), AH ( artificial horizon), turn and slip indiactor, and the turn co-ordinator)

We also had some Gen. Nav., POF and friday noon, we were introduced to another new course: Psycho. We started the course with the beautiful sentence: "Destiny is not a matter of chance, but a matter of choice." 
And for once, it was very quiet at the third floor and in the classroom, because the Maltese guys left Thursday for the x-mass holidays.

Did u know that:

* 'Gimbal' isn't a sport
* 'Gimbal lock' isn't a kind of strange dance
* There is no 'I' in 'We, Crew and Teamwork'
* That you can order sandwiches
* That 'search-the-sandwiches' is a daily game at SFA
* Everybody hates that game
* A 'Tumbling' is not a tropical animal
* I still love that I'm the only girl
* My prom rulez

 C u all next time...

 grtz

So, 'gimbal' isn't a sport, isn't a strange dance, maybe it is something to eat? Njammie, gumballs! :p
