The Instructor Operator Station (IOS) software is a Frasca developed COTS software suite. It provides the operator with control over the simulation and access to various training management tools.
When the trainer is in the Freeze state, all flight simulation and flight parameters remain constant at the value at the time it was frozen. When the trainer is unfrozen the flight simulation will continue from were it was frozen.
Connect to the RTD Wi-Fi. Enter the Wi-Fi password. Go to 192.168.5.20.
The Reposition page supports repositioning by City or by Airport. The aircraft can also be repositioned using the Map page.
Performs an automatic (software controlled) engine start. The start takes the same amount of time as a manual start, and requires that the engine controls be set to accommodate an operating engine (otherwise the engine will promptly die after starting), but no pilot input is required during the start.
The Map page is a graphical display intended to depict the aircraft’s enroute flight path. All runways are displayed on the Map Page as long as the trainer is connected to the internet.
The Approach page provides a glideslope, and a localizer view of an ILS approach.
When encountering opposing ILS’s with shared frequencies, one will be on and the other will be off. Navigation stations can be enabled and disabled using the RTD IOS. When enabling the ILS that is currently turned off (disabled), be sure to turn off (disable) the opposing ILS, so that only one is on at a time.
The Weight & Balance page allows the operator to define a payload weight at each loading station in the aircraft, e.g. seats, tanks, etc. The system automatically computes the Gross Weight and Longitudinal CG (Center of Gravity) based payload weight and CG at each loading station in the aircraft.
