D.1.5) Flightdeck Viewer

By taking several hundred images of an aircraft flight deck (and avionics bay and cargo hold) and linking them via hotspots in HTML it was possible to navigate through the aircraft. Using multiple overlaid images allowed the effects of switch selections to be shown. Linkage was established via VB5, using the names of images to do so.

Images taken during maintenance were also added, allowing the user to 'drill down' and see what was behind panels

This supported training and obviated the need to drive half the way around the M25 to check a minor detail of the flightdeck.

E.g. 1: Selection of ECAM switches changes ECAM page

E.g. 2: Click on hatch and it opens
