Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS)

Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS)




  • Electronic flight displays have replaced free-spinning gyros with solid-state laser systems that are capable of flight at any attitude without tumbling.
  •  This capability is the result of the development of the Attitude and Heading Reference
  • System (AHRS).
  • The AHRS sends attitude information to the PFD in order to generate the pitch and bank information of the attitude indicator.
  •  The heading information is derived from a magnetometer which senses the earth’s lines of magnetic flux.
  • This information is then processed and sent out to the PFD to generate the heading display.
