The Shuttle Training Aircraft (STA) are extensively modified for their mission, including having flaps that move up and down to allow the steep approach of the orbiter. The left side of the instrument panel is a copy of the orbiter flight control system including stick, instrumentation and HUD, and is used by the astronauts to practice orbiter glider like approaches and landings.
