This is a short DEMO glossary also showing the auto-linking capability for the lessons.

Abbreviation for AutoPilot.
Disregarding the following instructions leads to serious deterioration of flight safety.
Cylinder Head Temperature
Cylinder Head Temperature is measured by a temperature sensor in the cylinder head. It is an extremely important data, since it can prevent thermal damage to the cylinder (overcooling or overheating).
Engine Monitoring System
A portion of the Skyview with the engine data (temperatures, pressures and fuel) displayed.
Factor of gravity. It is used to express the apparent increase of mass due to inertia. While the actual mass of an object remains the same, during manouvering this object is apparently heavier. The G factor quantifies how much heavier.
A mass of a pilot is 80 kg. When manouvering at 3G, the pilot mass is still 80 kg, but the apparent mass that the seat has to carry is 3 (G) X 80 kg = 240 kg.
The airspeed shown on the instrument(s). It is an almost direct representation of dynamic pressure exerted on the aircraft.
Maximum Take-Off Mass
The maximum takeoff mass also known as maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of an aircraft is the maximum mass at which the pilot of the aircraft is allowed to attempt to take off, due to structural or other limits.
This mass is absolute and does not vary with atmospheric conditions, flap settings or anything else.
Outside Air Temperature
Temperature of the outside air measured by a probe on the aircraft.
Primary Flight Display
A portion of the Skyview with the basic flying instruments (airspeed, altitude, pitch, roll, sideslip, heading etc.) displayed.
Revolutions Per Minute is the measure of rotation speed.
If an object is turning with 2500 RPM it means it makes 2500 full rotations in one minute.
True Air Speed of an aircraft is the speed of the aircraft relative to the airmass in which it is flying.
Disregarding the following instructions leads to severe deterioration of flight safety and hazardous situations, including such resulting in injury and loss of life.
