This is my first edit of the page, covering the Aircraft Instruments system. I am happy with it, but not sure about putting this much information on one page. It will have to be split up into multiple pages using subsections I guess.

Page length depends on the amount of content and overall vision for the project. One point to consider is progressive disclosure. Give users enough detail to understand what they want to do next and allow them to choose from there.
A way to approach this overall is to consider what one lesson, or one class session might be. Would you cover all of this in a single class meeting, or would you spread it out. Since you mentioned you are using this for study, think about how the material was presented to you. Was this a single meeting, or should you have more pages because there is more detail to come?

temporarily moving content to userspace[edit]

I am not happy with the page setup, so I am moving further development temporarily to my userspace, under the subject Aircraft Systems User:RandyRostie/Aircraft_Systems but feel free to copy anything from the new page back here or elsewhere. RandyRostie (discusscontribs) 07:06, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Just be aware that moving pages is different from copying content. When you move pages, the edit history goes along with the move, which maintains CC-BY-SA licensing (the BY part). If you just copy the content, you lose that edit history. If the new content will ultimately be copied back here again, then there is no issue. If the new content goes somewhere else, you need a link to this page from the other to show that there was history. A custodian can merge page histories once you're done. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:37, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
