Vertical Gyro Collins Type 332D-2 for Collins Integrated Flight System FD-101/102

$125.00

This Vertical Gyro is part of the 1950's-era Collins Integrated Flight System, combining Flight Director and Automatic Pilot systems used in civil aircraft such as the British ATL-98 Carvair (surplus Douglas DC-4's converted to carry passengers and vehicles) and Vickers Viscount, and possibly military aircraft of that era.  

The Type 332D-2 was likely used on the Collins FD-101 and/or FD-102 Integrated Flight Systems (FD-103's used a later number sequence).

This gyro is a non-tumbling vertical reference which supplies signals in proportion to the roll and pitch of the aircraft.  Measures approximately 10 inches long by 5 inches by 6 inches, and weighs ~6 lbs.  The cover can be easily removed, revealing the gyro mechanism itself. It has a date stamp of July 1960, and is in fine cosmetic condition given its age. Makes a very cool display item.
