A dynamic flight simulator control system for enhancing flight realism to a pilot with regard to his perception and response to the linear forces and angular motions generated by a gimballed force and motion platform at the end of a rotating arm. Flight commands generated by controls identical to those in a specified aircraft and operated by the pilot as if flying are converted to the forces and motions predetermined for the aircraft and translated into simulator command signals which regulate the angular velocity of the arm and the roll and pitch of the platform. The perceived angular motions for both the aircraft pilot and the simulator pilot are predicted by computers pre-programmed with mathematical models of their human angular sensor responses and any difference is minimized by iteratively adjusting coefficients in the simulator command signals for predetermined weighting factors based on the individual pilots preference.
