The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation with authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. (National Airworthiness Authority). The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 created the group under the name "Federal Aviation Agency", and adopted its current name in 1967 when it became a part of the United States Department of Transportation. The Federal Aviation Administration's major roles include: Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation. Regulating air navigation facilities' geometry and Flight inspection standards. Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology. Issuing, suspending, or revoking pilot certificates. Regulating civil aviation to promote safety, especially through local offices called Flight Standards District Offices. Developing and operating a system of air traffic control and navigation for both civil and military aircraft. Researching and developing the National Airspace System and civil aeronautics. Developing and carrying out programs to control aircraft noise and other environmental effects of civil aviation.
Battle of Britain Aircraft is a guide to all the aircraft from both sides that officially took part in the 1940 Battle of Britain: fighters, bombers and even rescue aircraft, in the service of both the Axis and Allied nations.

This manual is primarily a ready reference to assist the ground observer in aircraft recognition and identification. It provides information on current operational aircraft of the United States and foreign countries, which may be observed worldwide in the combat area. It can be used as source material for personnel conducting unit training in visual aircraft recognition.
The procedures in this publication apply throughout the US Army. The data is based on the best information available at the time of publication; however, it is not all-inclusive because of some classification guidelines. This publication, by nature, has a built-in time lag, and some aircraft may still be under development or classified at the time of writing, but may be fielded or unclassified at, or after, publication.

It lets you 'tune' aircraft navigation non-directional beacons (NDB) and gives you bearing and distance information to that NDB.
It uses a worldwide navigation database (downloaded on first use) and is not restricted by radio range.
It uses your device GPS position and heading to calculate bearing and distance to the tuned NDB.
- Bendix/King KI-227 face
- Worldwide NDB navigation database (downloaded on firt use)
- Digital Bearing and distance to station indications
- Option to operate as rotable compass card (just rotate with your finger!)
- Filtered and smoothed display - no jitter or jumping!
- Support for portrait and landscape screens
- Support for multiple screen resolutions
IMPORTANT POINT 1 - Please ensure you have an active data connection when starting the app for the first time as it will attempt to download the radio navigation database.
IMPORTANT POINT 2- To function correctly, the application requires not only a GPS position fix but also a valid GPS groundtrack. It may be necessary to move your device to give the GPS the data it requires to make this calculation.
Don't use it until you know its working!
Until a GPS fix is obtained, or in case of GPS fix being lost, the ADF will 'park' itself at 90 degrees and '---' will be shown in both the bearing and distance text boxes.
Tuning a station
Use the app menu to select 'Tune NDB'. You will be presented with all the NDB stations within 200 nautical miles of your current location. Selecting a NDB will tune it up. Hit your devices 'Back' button when you have selected your desired VOR.
Interpreting the display
If you have a valid GPS fix, the bearing to the NDB will be shown by the ADF needle and the top (or left in landscape mode) digital text box will show a digital bearing indication - the course you need to fly to travel towards the beacon. The distance in nautical miles to the NDB will be shown in the bottom (or right in landscape mode) digital text box.
Rotatable compass card
By default, the ADF compass card will slave itself to the GPS groundtrack, making the instrument a true single-needle Radio Magnetic Indicator(RMI). However, you can manually turn the ADF into a rotatable compass card instrument using the toggle option in the app menu. Once toggled, you can easily rotate the card using your finger.

The Handbook of aircraft of WWII includes all the aircraft used by those countries which were at war during WWII from the period between their joining the conflict and the conflict ending for them.
A bomber is a military aircraft designed to attack ground and sea targets, by dropping bombs on them, firing torpedoes at them, or – in recent years – by launching cruise missiles at them.
With engine power as a major limitation, combined with the desire for accuracy and other operational factors, bomber designs tended to be tailored to specific roles. By the start of the war this included:
dive - specially strengthened for vertical diving attacks for greater accuracy.
light, medium and heavy - subjective definitions based on size.
torpedo - specialized aircraft armed with torpedoes.
ground attack aircraft - used against targets on a battlefield such as troop or tank concentrations. A further specialized form was the anti-tank aircraft.
night - specially equipped to operate at night when opposing defences are limited.
maritime patrol - long range bombers that were used against enemy shipping, particularly submarines.
Bombers are not intended to attack other aircraft although most were fitted with defensive weapons. WWII saw the beginning of the widespread use of high speed bombers which dispensed with defensive weapons to be able to attain higher speed, such as with the de Havilland Mosquito..
Some smaller designs have been used as the basis for night fighters, and a number of fighters, such as the Hawker Hurricane were used as ground attack aircraft, replacing earlier conventional light bombers that proved unable to defend themselves while carrying a useful bombload.
