7-60. DEMONSTRATION PREPARATION. The purpose of the demonstration (DEMO) prepara-
tion feature is to permit demos to be prepared by recording a period of flight per-
formance in the CMS, modifying that recording as required to enhance its instruc-
tional value, and adding the appropriate instructional commentary. The subject
matter of demos should consist of complex individual maneuvers or a rapidly occur-
ring series of maneuvers. It is not expected that demos will be prepared to illus-
trate mission segments in which individual maneuvers are separated by extended per-
iods of relatively simple aircraft control tasks. For these reasons, most demos,
including those that contain pauses and slow-time segments, will be brief (i.e..
less than 5 minutes in duration). Long demos are counterproductive in most in-
stances and should not be prepared. There is computer space for preparation and
storage of 20 demos of up to 5 minutes duration each.
a. Recording of a demo is normally preceded by the development of a scenario for
the demo. The scenario should identify or include the follwing:
(1) Simulated conditions under which the maneuver(s) of interest will be flown
(IC set), and the flight profile to be followed.
(2) Number of repetitions of all or designated portions of the maneuver that
are to be included in the completed demo.
(3) Where pauses are to appear for insertion of instructional commentary.
(4) Which segments, if any, are to be presented in slow-time.
(5) Beginning of each demo segment that is to be directly accessible by the
(6) Script for the planned instructional commentary.
b. Following development of the scenario with its accompanying audio commentary
s c r i p t , the demo described in it is ready to be prepared. The follwing sequence
of activities is required to prepare a demo: enable demo prep: set up, fly, and
record flight profile; and edit (pauses, slow-time, segment identification, audio
(1) Enable demo prep. Setting up the CMS for the task of preparing a demo,
except for enabling the preparation feature at the computer roan, is comparable to
setting it up for an instructional training period. Demo prep enable is defined as
a state in which the commands on the demo prep CRT page 940 (figure 7-69) are pro-
cessed and/or executed. The following conditions must be satisfied to enable the
demo prep instructional feature:
(a) Demo prep can be selected only when the prep mode is enabled at the
(b) Demo prep CRT page 940 is then called up from the keyboard at the master
(Either IOS can be the master, but the master cannot be changed while demo
prep is active.)
During demo recording. the demo records on the CPG disk only.
