Abstract : A servomechanical controller for inputting prerecorded flight data to an aircraft flight simulator is provided which comprises a pair of servomotors operatively interconnected to a single output shaft connected to the flight simulator control wheel, one motor controlling simulated pitch to the wheel by imparting axial movement to the shaft, and the other motor controlling simulated roll by imparting rotation to the shaft, transducer means for sensing both angular and axial position of the shaft, and a force sensor for sensing torque and axial load on the shaft. The controller is configured for accepting analog or digital prerecorded electronic command inputs and translating those inputs to the flight simulator. (Author)
