Instructor/Operator Stations

J.F. Taylor, Inc. has been developing Instructor Operator Systems since 1994. Our experience with flight simulator Instructor Operator Stations (IOSs) ranges from compact single-monitor, single-operator IOSs to large, multiple-monitor, multiple-operator IOSs.

Each IOS is designed and developed to meet the specific requirements of the customer, including mechanical layout and configuration, electrical components, and IOS software capabilities. We have developed a powerful, yet easy-to-use, IOS software package (for MS Windows) that can be easily modified to support almost any aircraft simulator (fixed-wing or rotary-wing).
