Pictures related to the development of the LV-MLF flight simulator during 2008.

in order to access it quickly and conveniently in the future: the index has several thousand pictures, so you may take your time to visit it.

2008-01A-30P.jpg - The LV-MLF cockpit in its 2008 configuration; at the overhead panel three hardware modules are visible: Two are radio modules corresponding to NA1N1 and NAV2, and the other is an internal ventilation module.

2008-01A-31P.jpg - On the foreground, the AP control module seen from the co-pilot seat on the LV-MLF.

2008-01A-32P.jpg - An external view overlooking a dusty runway during a DHC6 Twin Otter simulation in Nepal.

2008-01A-33P.jpg - The main panel of LV-MLF during a DHC6 Twotter simulation.

2008-01A-34P.jpg - A view from the captain's seat; over the panel, the checklists of the B350 configuration used for LV-MLF.

2008-01A-35P.jpg - LV-MLF ready for a simulated flight.

2008-01A-36P.jpg - All systems on before departing from Simikot, Nepal, on a DHC6 simulation using LV-MLF.

2008-01A-37P.jpg - A view from the front door of the simulator cockpit as LV-MLF begins taxiing to the runway in use on a small airfield; the simulation is reproducing a DHC6 in the mountains of Nepal for a little bush flying practice.

2008-01A-40P.jpg - Taxiing; a view from the captain's seat.

2008-01A-41P.jpg - Pablo Edronkin shortly before a flight on LV-MLF using a DHC6 configuration and a panel using Meggit and Garmin systems, among others.

2008-01A-42P.jpg - Front view from the pilot's seat; some clouds are visible on the sky of the virtual world of the simulator.

2008-01A-43P.jpg - A view of the simulator's panel with some components still unfinished and a simulated EHSI.

2008-01A-44P.jpg - A part of the main panel showing some instruments on a DHC6 configuration; a Garmin 530, TCAS II and a radio altimeter have been included among sets of more conventional Twin Otter instruments.

2008-01A-45P.jpg - A part of the main instrument panel on the simulator; I this picture two radio modules are visible: One corresponds to the COM system, with two frequencies set. 119.10 MHz has been configured as the main COM1 frequency and 125,90 is on stand-by. At the left of the picture, the ADF / XPNDR modules is partially visible, with 242,0 KHz as the stand-by frequency for a nearby NDB.

2008-01A-46P.jpg - A partial view of the autopilot module on LV-MLF as it flies over the mountains following course 100; some cumulus are visible on the sky, indicating fair weather with some degree of turbulence.

2008-01A-47P.jpg - The author while flying on LV-MLF; at the panel, various Meggit and Garmin systems are visible that are managed using the hardware modules installed just below the monitors.

2008-01A-48P.jpg - A view of the AP and the exterior of the cockpit.

2008-01A-49P.jpg - Flying over a mountainous region with the LV-MLF simulator.

2008-01A-50P.jpg - Flying over some mountains at 25.000ft with the LV-MLF simulator.

2008-01A-51P.jpg - The Garmin 530 is one of the best GPS instruments currently available for general aviation; there are several different software producers distributing their versions and some are more complete than others and simulate in slightly different ways the original product.

2008-01A-52P.jpg - Some primary instruments on LV-MLF that allowed us to create cleaner panels.

2008-01A-53P.jpg - This is how the simulator LV-MLF looks like while fling over some mountains.

2008-01A-54P.jpg - A view of the central part of LV-MLF's panel as a Twin Otter flight is being simulated; in this picture a Garmin 530 is visible along several engine instruments, the annunciator panel and the autopilot management system.

2008-01A-55P.jpg - In this picture the exterior view of the simulator becomes apparent sporting a mountain range; inside the cockpit, two of the flat monitors comprising the main panel are partially visible, and it also becomes apparent the texture that we gave to the images that appear in these screens in order to increase realism.

2008-01A-56P.jpg - A view from the co-pilot seat to the outside virtual world as LV-MLF flies over some mountains all along a series of altocumulus.

2008-01A-57P.jpg - Altostratus and cirrus-type clouds on a virtual sky as seen from the co-pilot's seat on the LV-MLF simulator.

2008-01A-58P.jpg - A view of the LV-MLF's panel sporting a DHC6 configuration from the forward starboard door while a simulation is running, rendering the mountains over Kashmir.

2008-01A-59P.jpg - With the autopilot in charge of everything for a while, we sneaked to the back of the sim cockpit and took this picture flying over the mountains of Kashmir.

2008-01A-60P.jpg - A view that shows how is the DHC6 panel configuration on LV-MLF almost in its entirety.
