Here are some shots of the Blackhawk avionics trainer we built recently...
The first photo is the nose compartment of the UH-60M which contains much of the radio equipment, DC bus batteries, etc.
The second shot is an outside view of the trainer. If you look through the pilot's window, that's actually me you see sitting behind the trainer working on code no doubt.
The next photo is the view from the co-pilot's side of the cockpit looking in from the outside showing the cyclic stick (used to control pitch and roll, weapons, radio, etc.) and the yaw pedals as well as the co-pilot's MFDs (multi function displays) that normally contain the flight data.
The fourth photo shows the dash from behind the pilot (on right) and co-pilot (on left) with the MFDs powered up and active. These displays give flight data, engine data, weapon stores, system status. You also see the FD/DCP and crew alert panels below the MFDs powered up an active.
The two images after that one are close ups of the co-pilot's instrument panel and the last image is a view of the cockpit from between the left and right gunner's positions (pretty much in the troop commander's position.
What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.
