The instructor must ensure that ownship penetrates the upper GCA
box displayed on page 341 to receive command information in the
command box on GCA pages.
7-37. ALTITUDE/AIRSPEED PLOTS. The altitude/airspeed plots graphically depict a
history of aircraft performance related to altitude and airspeed versus distance.
The altitude is measured and recorded above obstacles from the surface to a maximum
of 200 feet AGL. Airspeed is IAS recorded up to normal cruise speed of the actual
a i r c r a f t . Distance is selectable by the instructor in two scales. Distance is
measured in terms of cumulative movement without respect to direction of such move-
Major characteristics of the plots (sham in figures 7-28 and 7-29) include:
Altitude above ground versus distance
Indicated airspeed versus distance
Two selectable plot scales: 6- and l-km
b. The airspeed/altitude plots are in group 3 (GRAPHICS) and art accessed via
the data entry keyboard by keying in CRT page 360 or CRT page 361. Typical uses of
the altitude/airspeed plots include:
(1) Monitoring trainee altitude control during enroute navigation:
NOE navigation routes
Tactical instrument routes (under 200 feet only)
( 2 ) Monitoring trainee altitude control in the firing position.
(3) Monitoring trainee airspeed control throughout training missions.
(4) Debriefing/critiquing trainee performance via the hardcopy feature.
7-38. CONTROL PANEL CRT DISPLAYS. The control panel CRT displays are facsimile
representations of aircraft cockpit control panels. These displays include the
panel title, title and position of each switch, setting of each control, status of
each indicator, and value of each readout on the panel represented. The eight con-
trol panel displays and their CRT page numbers are:
CPG missile control panel and data entry keyboard (page 370) (figure 7-u))
a. The control panel CRT displays art in group 3 (GRAPHICS) and are accessed via
the data entry keyboard by calling up CRT pages 370 through 377. (Refer to the
list and associated page numbers above.)
