The trainee can "zoom" into the system to visually inspect various components, including dirt or ice on coils, and a dirty air filter.
He can also "listen" to the compressor as it starts and runs (normal or abnormal).
Measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other.
The stagnation temperature is the temperature of the airflow at a stagnation point, such as the leading edge of the wing or nose of the aircraft.

Animated mechanical and electrical schematic diagrams of the simulated system are provided in "real-time".
The mechanical diagram shows refrigerant flow, as well as the liquid, vapor, liquid/vapor, and superheated vapor states of the refrigerant.
