Section IV. TRAINING CAPABILITIES
2-49. The simulator is a fully-operational mission simulator with pilot and copilot stations that duplicate the actual
helicopter cockpit configuration. The simulator simulates, in real-time, applicable normal and emergency aircraft
operation with respect to both transient and steady-state flight conditions. Simulator operation involves capabilities such
as engine performance, flying qualities, aircraft systems performance and operation, radio communications and
navigational systems performance and operation, environmental effects, and flightpath. Simulation includes appropriate
trainee and IOS instrument and aural indications, aircraft control reactions, visual cue presentations, and display traces
that respond to trainee, instructor, and computer-programmed control inputs. When the visual and/or motion system is
inoperative, training capabilities are limited.
2-50. TRAINING OBJECTIVES.
2-51. The simulator can be used to provide transition and continuation training proficiency flying. It can also be used to
train pilots for all normal and emergency flight maneuvers, navigation, and starting, runup, and shutdown procedures.
The simulator is capable of complete mission simulation and can be used to train the pilot and copilot simultaneously on
the same mission. The simulator can also be used to train instructor pilots and maintenance officers.
2-52. Training can be conducted for the following basic aircraft maneuvers:
Startup and taxiing (two- and four-wheel)
Hovering flight (including turns)
Normal takeoff from a hover
Normal takeoff from the ground
VMC approach to a hover
VMC approach to the ground
Straight climbs and descents
Turning climbs and descents
2-53. ADVANCED MANEUVERS.
2-54. Training can be conducted for the following advanced maneuvers:
Maximum performance takeoff
Sling load operations
Low-level, contour, and NOE flight
Threat detection and avoidance
