Frasca RTD iPad/iPhone App
IOS at a Glance
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.
Freezing/Unfreezing the Simulator
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.
Connecting to the RTD IOS with a Wireless Device
Connect to the RTD Wi-Fi. Enter the Wi-Fi password. Go to 192.168.5.20.
Repositioning the Aircraft
The Reposition page supports repositioning by City or by Airport. The aircraft can also be repositioned using the Map page.
Quick Starting the Engine
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.
Using the Map
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.
Using the Approach
The Approach page provides a glideslope, and a localizer view of an ILS approach.
