Abstract : This report primarily discusses non-hardware aspects of approach and landing simulation. Models are presented for external disturbances, including wind shear, turbulence, ILS noise and runway roughness. Major constraints on the fidelity of visual and motion cues that can occur in ground-based simulators are summarized, and experience regarding overall simulation development and validation including the effects of the pilots' learning requirements in simulation programs, are reviewed.
