Despite that it's been called a lot of names, this gyro instrument in its most basic form comes with an easy-to-read dial with a symbolic plane on the instrument glass to facilitate pilots reading the direction the plane is heading. The use of heading reference system allows the reference mark to align with the true direction the plane is traveling. Additionally, the air driven heading indicator is available with a locking feature to ensure maximum reliability in navigation.
