Re: IFF helper docs and a vid to help you get up to speed.

The only thing you're going to need during flight is your TMS left to initiate an IFF query (if your aircraft is capable). The rest can be set up during ramp start. Only other need to mess with any of the stuff on the left panel would be in the case of an emergency; and we really aren't there yet. :)
