These shots are from the Chinook avionics trainer we built...
The first image here is of the rack system holding the power distribution, computers, I/O chassis, etc., that manage the trainer. It lives just outside the trainer.
The next two images show some of the LRUs (line replaceable units) such as radios, etc., along with wiring, hydraulic systems, etc. These are all tactical... meaning they appear here as they do in the real aircraft... fit, form and function.
The fourth image is the view from the back of the crew compartment/cabin up to the cockpit showing equipment and wiring matching the tactical aircraft.
The fifth image is the view of the cockpit from outside the co-pilot's door. You'll note the layout is very similar to the Blackhawk, but also markedly different. Each airframe is truly unique.
The next shot is just one that I think is cool... it's looking at the front of the trainer. It looks remarkably like a happy face unless you happen to be the guy he's pissed off at. ~lol~
The image after that shows the dash from behind the pilot (right) and co-pilot (left) positions with the flight displays powered up and active.
The final two shots show exterior views of the trainer installed at the training facility in the first one and being wrapped up in our facilities in the second one.
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.
