  #1, #2 and #3 Overhead Projectors Inoperative A, B, C, D No Training or Checking* * Flight Engineer checking authorized.
Motion System Inoperative A, B, C, D No Training or Checking* * Flight Engineer checking authorized.
Control Loading System Inoperative A, B, C, D No Training or Checking N/A
Sound Audio System Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions Must be operational and at the volume level as initially approved for all training and checking; however, an instructor may turn the sound completely off for short durations to instruct or explain procedures.
Console at Instructor Station Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions May be inoperative if a portable remote control unit is available and operational. The instructor may use the unit from any seat location.
Lights and Annunciator including Master Warning Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions Malfunction Illuminated. One annunciator light on each system may be inoperative provided the same information can be obtained from another source. Example: Oil pressure warning light inoperative, oil pressure instrument gauge could be used.

Normal Operation Illuminated. Lights may be inoperative provided required information can be obtained from another source. Example: Pilot heat normal operation light is inoperative. Information could be obtained from ammeter.

Light Annunciator Including Master Warning Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions Master Warning. At least one must operate.
Lights Cockpit Controlled Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions Any one or group of lights may be inoperative provided lighting is available from another source. Example: The captain's instrument lights are inoperative. The panel fluorescent lights could be used.
Instrument Flight One or All are Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions All instruments required by Regulations for the type operation/training to be conducted must operate at the pilot seat where training credit is allowed. Example: Day, night, IFR, VFR.One or all may be inoperative at the other pilot seat. The instructor or another pilot may occupy that seat and no training credit will be allowed.
Instruments Performance Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions One per engine may be inoperative. Example: N2 gauge is inoperative. N1, N3, EPR must operate. EGT gauge is required for all training. Torque meter is required for all training. Torque meter is required for all training in turboprop aeroplane simulators.
Instruments Navigation Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions* Only those navigation instruments required for the navigation or instrument approach training to be conducted must operate. Example: Conducting NDB approaches, VOR and ILS could be inoperative.

* Flight Engineer Training and checking is authorized.

Instruments Quantity Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions One from each system may be inoperative provided the information can be obtained from another source. Example: One fuel tank quantity gauge is inoperative. In the case of quantity, the instructor may provide that information from the instructor's console.
Instruments System Operation Inoperative A, B, C, D Training under Specific Conditions One may be inoperative from each system provided system operation can be confirmed from another source. Example: Hydraulic system pressure gauge is inoperative; however, the pressure light operates.
Computer Inoperative A, B, C, D No Training or Checking N/A
Cockpit to Computer Input Output System (Signal Conversion) Inoperative A, B, C, D No Training or Checking N/A
