Advantages of the gyrostabilised remote indicating compass over the direct reading magnetic compass are?
reduced turning errors, reduced deviation and salvable output.
Advantages of the direct reading magnetic compass over the gyrostabilised remote indicating compass are?

Aircraft weather radar suffers from attenuation, The term attenuation means?
weakening of the transmission and returns
The principale advantage of the IVSI or the VSI is ?
The IVSI utilises an inertial system to assist in climb and descent.
