Abstract:

The results of a study to determine the dynamic response criteria for helicopter simulator trainers are presented. The fundamentals of helicopter dynamics, control and simulation are described within the various helicopter flight regimes. Difficulties likely to be encountered in developing an adequate helicopter simulation are presented. Methods and procedures for determining the accuracy to which specific dynamic response parameters must be simulated are presented. Pilot sensitivities are developed for each significant handling qualities parameter in each flight regime. The dynamic attributes of the pilot-aircraft combination with regard to each specific parameter are discretely and comprehensively discussed. A detailed description of helicopter equation of motion, transfer functions and modes of motion are presented. The practical limitations of various methods and procedures for programming the equations of motion for piloted flight simulation purposes are discussed. Author
