The MCX Josh and I used for the demo was a steam-gauge Cessna 172 with a Garmin 530 installed. Before joining the flight, Josh showed me the operator’s panel he’d be using on his iPad that offers the pilot considerable variety on the operating conditions for each approach, like the procedure entry. The student can choose to fly the entire approach or choose radar vectors. If they choose vectors, the computer generates a normal human voice acting as the controller to guide the aircraft to the final approach intercept. There’s a third fun option called “surprise me” that chooses one of the first two options and lets the student discover which on their own as they would in the real world. The pilot can also choose the wind speed and direction, a partial panel failure possibility, a circle to land option or the possibility of a missed approach at minimums. Just like the approach entry, the student can also choose the “surprise me” option here.
