An F-105 CanopySeat Cockpit Trainer, Panasonic Television Monitor System, and an SMK-22 Visual Approach Simulator were interfaced to yield a low-cost, six-degree-of-freedom visual approach and landing simulation system for future research and classroom use. Stick and throttle outputs from the cockpit were made to operate all six degrees of freedom. The television monitor was mounted forward of the cockpit instrument panel to provide visual cues for approaches, landings, and take-offs. Cockpit instruments consist of airspeed, altimeter, and ID-249 ILS indicators. Author
