Aircraft Radio Simulator Instrument Panel

Simulated instrument panel for the Aircraft Radio Simulator (updated 3-17-11)

A brief note tonight to say the development of the Aircraft Radio Simulator continues. The cockpit instrument panel is in the works. This will be a fully functional panel that synchronizes with the aircraft’s radio stack.

Development also continues on voice recognition capabilities to allow you to speak directly to simulated air traffic controllers.

If you would like to learn more, and have some input into the building of the Aircraft Radio Simulator, sign up using the pop-up form at the bottom of this page. Those who have already signed up are currently testing the radio stack’s capabilities. Don’t miss out!

Kindly do let me know how can be instrument panel tested (structurally)after having installation of Turn and Slip Indicator and Altimeter.
Which equipment can be used for testing?

I’m not sure about your question. What do you mean by instrument panel tested (structurally)?

Are you doing testing of the structural strength of the instrument panel?

Do you want to test the accuracy of both the turn and slip indicator, and the altimeter?

For either test, you need a certified airplane mechanic. I do not know how to perform these tests because I am a pilot, not an airplane mechanic.

Sorry I could not help with this.

I want to test the radio simulator

Please explain. If you are having a problem, I do not understand what it is.

Dear Sir, thank you so much for your podcasts. I recently downloaded many of your episodes on my IPad. I am a private pilot training for my IFR certification. A major hurtle for me is communications with ATC.
I am a bit hard of hearing to begin with and really appreciate your insight and knowledge on this subject. It is so helpful to be able to understand the working and thought processes that go on on the other end of a radio transmission. Thank you sincerely yours Scott Howatt

You are very welcome. Let me know if, as you train, you have any questions about ATC comm. I’ll be glad to answer.

Hi Jeff

I just found your site after reading Sarah Fritt’s survival guide. I did struggle a bit (quite a bit actually) with radio communication during my recent flying holiday in Florida. English is my second language and I am used to Scandinavian English ATC communication. US radio talk was much more intense and quicker. I’d like to buy your IFR-book but can’t find an e-book version on Amazon. Is it available elsewhere or are you planning to issue an electronic version as with the VFR-book?

Thanks for helping us amateur pilots becoming better pilots
Kind regards
