This T-38 cockpit simulator, made by Quintron Systems Corporation, trained pilots to operate a T-38 aircraft’s controls and instruments during takeoff, approach, and landing at night.  The Northrop T-38 Talon is a twin-engine, high-altitude, supersonic jet trainer used by the US Air Force to prepare pilots to fly front-line fighter and bomber aircraft.
