Description

The personnel seen in the picture are giving instructions by radio-phone to trainees who are seated in a Link Trainer, a piece of mechanism with controls similar to those of an aircraft. When the instructions are carried out the results are shown on instruments on the tables seen in the picture and the instructor can tell to what degree of efficiency the trainee is operating the controls.
