Development of a fixed base visual approach and landing simulator
Gibson, Richard Allen
MetadataShow full item record
A fixed base visual approach and landing simulator was developed using an F-105 Canopy/Seat Cockpit Trainer, Panasonic Closed Circuit Television System, and a SMK-22 Main Attachment Unit. Difficulties encountered in interface of the units necessitated modification of the SMK-22 Attachment Unit in both flight characteristics and operating modes. A main console was assembled to control and coordinate the operation of the system elements and monitor the system during simulated flight. Reduction in degrees of freedom was achieved through elimination of the yaw mode. An FJ-4 control stick was modified and installed in the cockpit replacing the fabricated control stick. Longitudinal trim control was achieved with the trim switch installed in the FJ-4 control stick, modifying longitudinal circuitry by means of an additional trim assembly.
