Abstract:

Recent research on a number of general flying qualities problems is reviewed in order to discuss the use of piloted simulators and their validity. Direct comparisons between different types of simulators and actual flight tests are used to show which information cues to the pilot are required in each of several basic problem areas, of advanced transports and spacecraft, where the use of simulators might be particularly desirable.
