NOTE
-
This subclass covers:

- simulators regarded as teaching or training devices, which
is the case if they give perceptible sensations having a
likeness to the sensations a student would experience in
reality in response to actions taken by him;
- models of buildings, installations, or the like.

This subclass does not cover:

- simulators which demonstrate, by means involving computing,
the function of apparatus or of a system, which are covered
by class G06, if no provision exists elsewhere
- components of simulators, if identical with real devices or
machines, which are covered by the relevant subclasses for
these devices or machines (and not by class G09).
