Simulator 

level 

B C D 

This table specifies the minimum airport visual model content and functionality to qualify a simulator at the indicated level. This 

table applies only to the airport scenes required for simulator qualification; i.e., two helicopter landing area models for Level B 
simulators; four helicopter landing area models for Level C and Level D simulators. 

1.

..............

Functional test content requirements 
The following is the minimum airport/landing area model content requirement to satisfy visual capability tests, and 
provides suitable visual cues to allow completion of all functions and subjective tests described in this attachment 
for simulators at Level B. 

1.a. ...........

A minimum of one (1) representative airport and one (1) representative helicopter landing area 

model. The airport and the helicopter landing area may be contained within the same model. If 
but if this option is selected, the approach path to the airport runway(s) and the approach path to 
the helicopter landing area must be different. The model(s) used to meet the following require-
ments may be demonstrated at either a fictional or a real-world airport or helicopter landing area, 
but each must be acceptable to the sponsor’s TPAA, selectable from the IOS, and listed on the 
SOQ.

1.b. ...........

The fidelity of the visual scene must be sufficient for the aircrew to visually identify the airport and/or 

helicopter landing area; determine the position of the simulated helicopter within the visual scene; 
successfully accomplish take-offs, approaches, and landings; and maneuver around the airport on 
the ground, or hover taxi, as necessary.

1.c. ...........

Runways: 

1.c.1. ........

Visible runway number ............................................................................................................................

1.c.2. ........

Runway threshold elevations and locations must be modeled to provide sufficient correlation with 

helicopter systems (e.g., altimeter).

1.c.3. ........

Runway surface and markings ...............................................................................................................

1.c.4. ........

Lighting for the runway in use including runway edge and centerline ...................................................

1.c.5. ........

Lighting, visual approach aid (VASI or PAPI) and approach lighting of appropriate colors ..................

1.c.6. ........

Representative taxiway lights .................................................................................................................

1.d. ...........

Other helicopter landing area: 

1.d.1. ........

Standard heliport designation (‘‘H’’) marking, properly sized and oriented ............................................

1.d.2. ........

Perimeter markings for the Touchdown and Lift-Off Area (TLOF) or the Final Approach and Takeoff 

Area (FATO), as appropriate.

1.d.3. ........

Perimeter lighting for the TLOF or the FATO areas, as appropriate .....................................................

1.d.4. ........

Appropriate markings and lighting to allow movement from the runway or helicopter landing area to 

another part of the landing facility.
