Flight Simulations (TBOS)
UH-60 Blackhawk flight simulator is a device that artificially re-creates aircraft flight and the environment in which it flies. Capitalizes on emerging technological advances, mobility and cost effectiveness for pilot training. It includes replicating the equations that govern how aircraft fly, how they react to applications of flight controls, the effects of other aircraft systems, and how the aircraft reacts to external factors such as air density, turbulence, wind shear, cloud, precipitation, etc. It also allows pilots to train on emergency procedures that cannot be trained on a live aircraft.
The UH-60 Blackhawk flight simulator at Fort Knox Kentucky is regional based device that caters to our Army Reserve and Army Guard in the surrounding area. However, it is available for use by the active component and other federal agencies.

Training Device Fabrication Section
Primary mission is to produce and ship TRADOC approved training devices to Training Support Centers, installations and unit locations army wide.
Secondary mission is to produce unique (one of a kind) training devices for use by local units on a reimbursable basis. A limited number of locally generated Graphic Training Aids and large format training materials may be produced to support a specific training task or event. All locally produced items must be specifically training related.
