8-21. Two types of graphic representation are shown on the load meter display pages: a vertical altitude scale, and an
aircraft centered, north up, horizontal scale. The altitude scale goes from 0 to 100 feet above ground level (AGL). The
scale shows a representation of the load, and arrows (less than symbols) show the height where the slings become taut.
A representation of the aircraft and sling hooks is also shown.
8-22. The horizontal display shows the bearing and distance to the load. The aircraft symbol, three circles and an arrow,
remain centered in the display and indicates the aircraft heading. If the load is within the 70-foot radius (largest circle),
then it is represented on the display. If the load is beyond the 70-foot radius, its bearing is indicated by a line coming
from the aircraft, and its distance is indicated on that line in kilometers.
8-23. During load exercises, the instructor operator has the responsibility of acting as flight engineer. This involves
verbally directing the pilot over the load, hooking the load, and telling the pilot to lift the load. In the simulator, hooking
the load consists of pressing the appropriate button on the IOS aft control panel (AFT HOOKED, CTR HOOKED, or FWD
HOOKED). On the auxiliary control panel, the toggle switch is used to select FWD, CTR, or AFT. Then the LOAD
HOOKED button is pressed. Once the load is hooked and lifted, simulated flight characteristics change accordingly.
Pressing the cargo hooked switches with a load attached causes the load to be released. (Required hook combinations
for each load are shown in table 8-7.)
8-24. COMM/FACILITY DISPLAY.
8-25. The comm/facility display (CFD) data comprises the facility data when operating in the training mode. The first
page of the selected approach map facility data is assigned to the CFD whenever a map is selected. Data consists of
field elevation, departure and approach control frequencies, tower frequencies, ground control frequencies. and missed
approach instructions. (See figure 8-8.)
8-27. Up to 20 demonstration flights, each lasting up to 20 minutes, can be created. Each demonstration flight can be
accompanied by a recorded audio briefing of up to 10 minutes and a recorded audio commentary of up to 20 minutes. A
demonstration flight can be played back at either normal-speed or half-speed. Audio commentary is not included when
half-speed is used.
8-28. Audio on the simulator is recorded in digital format on disk, using the digital voice system (DVS). The audio
reaching the pilot or copilot headsets is recorded by the DVS when in the audio record mode and the IOS STUD MON
switchlight is illuminated.
8-29. Each demonstration flight can be segmented by placing up to nine maneuver marks in it. Maneuver marks are
primarily intended to allow division of a demonstration into smaller maneuvers or flight segments. Upon playback, a
demonstration can be started from the beginning or from any maneuver mark point. Audio commentary is available
when starting at a maneuver. Maneuver marks can also be used as starting points for rerecording a demonstration to
correct errors. It is also useful to have a maneuver mark near the end of a demo to facilitate adding to the demo.
