NORMAL OPERATING PROCEDURES
Section I. INSTRUCTOR OPERATOR STATION CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
The IOS forward and aft control panels are shown in figures 8-1 and 8-2, respectively. Controls on these panels
are described in tables 8-1 and 8-2.
The auxiliary control panel is shown in figure 8-3 and described in table 8-3. This panel is located on the aft
portion of the center console. The thumbwheel selector and INSERT and DELETE switchlights have the same
capabilities as the IOS forward control panel controls.
One rule that must be followed when operating the simulator is initiate, wait, verify, proceed.
This is especially true when operating keyboard and thumbwheel insert controls. The
scratchpad area at the bottom of the auxiliary information display (AID) permits verification of
keyboard selections before actual entry. This area also displays error messages for incorrect
entry of both thumbwheel and keyboard inputs.
The controls for the digital clock at the top of the IOS are shown in figure 8-4 and described in table 8-4. These
controls are accessed by lifting the access door.
