Abstract : Trainer Attachment, Visual Simulator SMK-43/F37A-T was designed to train and monitor pilots in the visual concepts of transitioning from instrument flight rules to visual flight rules at low altitudes and low visibility day and night conditions when landing, and also for visual day and night takeoffs under low ceiling and visibility conditions. Using a unique design, a trapezoidal raster of variable line spacing (functions of parent trainers altitude and position) on a flying spot scanner tube furnishes a light source which is focused on a two dimensional plane transparency of an airfield complex to generate red, blue and green signals.
