How does A320 Full Flight Simulator work Part 1
 
Hi Captain Lim,

I have been an avid simulator fan for some fifteen years and the base programme gives three types of flight deck / cockpit panels on which they provide a temperature reading appertaining to the external temperature.

However, there are two "versions: - TAT and SAT.

They may be the same thing, but what do the initials mean?

Just read your "Life in the Skies" - an excellent read.

Regards,

Alec White

Hi Alec,

TAT stands for Total Air Temperature.

In aviation, it is also known as the stagnation temperature. This temperature is measured by a temperature probe mounted on the surface of the aircraft. The probe is designed to bring the air to rest relative to the aircraft. In this process, the kinetic energy is converted into internal energy resulting in increase in temperature.

Thus the TAT is higher than the SAT or Static Air Temperature (ambient temperature).

The SAT also refers to the outside temperature around the aircraft that is unaffected by the airflow.

Thank you for your feedback about my book LIFE IN THE SKIES.
