The ARC 1 Flight Computer is a modern, accurate and user-friendly PPL flight computer. Made in the UK to the highest standards, to be the most accurate, quickest and most comprehensive PPL navigation computer yet produced. The clear and accurate printing, together with the smooth, grab-free operating mechanism makes it easy to obtain fast, accurate calculations.
The wind scale side is used for pre-flight calculation of heading and ground speed and crosswind component, usable down to speeds of 20 knots (i.e. no need for a separate microlight wind slide) and up to speeds of 850 knots.
The conversion side can be used to convert between units of distance, temperature, weight and volume; to calculate true airspeed, density and true altitude; to calculate fuel consumption, specific gravity and all time/speed/distance variables.
The ARC-1 is designed for accuracy and ease of use for JAR, NPPL and equivalent PPL examinations and built for durability and reliability. Thousands of PPLs and student pilots have passed their navigation exams using the ARC-1, which has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy, reliability and ease of use. Supplied in a protective wallet with marking pencil and eraser and a fully illustrated 70 page instruction manual included.
