Abstract : The patent is for a landing signal officer trainer having a cylindrically rolled holographic film with stored attitude data of yaw and pitch rotatably and slidably mounted in conjunction and relation to a laser beam source to vary yaw and pitch image attitude of a plane. There are a pechan prism rotatable to vary roll of the plane image, a zoom lens system to vary range of the plane image, enlarging lens apparatus to present an adequate image to a landing signal officer (LSO) observing the image, and a control panel operable by an instructor to vary the plane attitude and range position in accordance to the signals given by the trainee and thus provide unprogrammed training in guiding landing aircraft without use of actual equipment and in a manner in which the trainee participates.
