14 CFR Ch. I (1–1–19 Edition) 

Pt. 60, App. D 

chapter in a qualified FFS meets the defini-
tion of a Class II or Class III airport model 
as defined in Appendix F of this part. 

4. These references describe the require-

ments for visual scene management and the 
minimum distances from which runway or 
landing area features must be visible for all 
levels of simulator. The visual scene or air-
port model must provide, for each ‘‘in-use 
runway’’ or ‘‘in-use landing area,’’ runway or 
landing area surface and markings, runway 
or landing area lighting, taxiway surface and 
markings, and taxiway lighting. Additional 
requirements include correlation of the vis-
ual scenes or airport models with other as-
pects of the airport environment, correlation 
of the aircraft and associated equipment, 
scene quality assessment features, and the 
extent to which the instructor is able to ex-
ercise control of these scenes or models. 

5. For circling approaches, all require-

ments of this section apply to the runway 
used for the initial approach and to the run-
way of intended landing. 

6. The details in these scenes or models 

must be developed using airport pictures, 
construction drawings and maps, or other 
similar data, or be developed in accordance 
with published regulatory material. How-
ever, FSTD Directive 1 does not require that 
airport models contain details that are be-
yond the initially designed capability of the 
visual system, as currently qualified. The 
recognized limitations to visual systems are 
as follows: 

a. Visual systems not required to have run-

way numbers as a part of the specific runway 
marking requirements are: 

(1) Link NVS and DNVS. 
(2) Novoview 2500 and 6000. 
(3) FlightSafety VITAL series up to, and 

including, VITAL III, but not beyond. 

(4) Redifusion SP1, SP1T, and SP2. 
b. Visual systems required to display run-

way numbers only for LOFT scenes are: 

(1) FlightSafety VITAL IV. 
(2) Redifusion SP3 and SP3T. 
(3) Link-Miles Image II. 
c. Visual systems not required to have ac-

curate taxiway edge lighting are: 

(1) Redifusion SP1. 
(2) FlightSafety Vital IV. 
(3) Link-Miles Image II and Image IIT 
(4) XKD displays (even though the XKD 

image generator is capable of generating 
blue colored lights, the display cannot ac-
commodate that color). 

7. A copy of this Directive must be filed in 

the MQTG in the designated FSTD Directive 
Section, and its inclusion must be annotated 
on the Index of Effective FSTD Directives 
chart. See Attachment 4, Appendices A 

through D of this part for a sample MQTG 
Index of Effective FSTD Directives chart.

This appendix establishes the standards for 

Helicopter Flight Training Device (FTD) 
evaluation and qualification at Level 4, 
Level 5, Level 6, or Level 7. The NSPM is re-
sponsible for the development, application, 
and implementation of the standards con-
tained within this appendix. The procedures 
and criteria specified in this appendix will be 
used by the NSPM, or a person or persons as-
signed by the NSPM when conducting heli-
copter FTD evaluations.
