Abstract : The paper describes TRIAD, a prototype simulation complex developed for helicopter pilot training that incorporates embedded simulation principles. TRIAD comprises three major components; a computer/linkage/peripheral complex, an out-the-window CIG visual display system and a Bell 206 Helicopter, each integrated together to demonstrate the feasibility of embedded simulation for pilot training while maintaining certification on the aircraft configuration on the aircraft configuration. The total system is described and includes the technical approach, an assessment of achieved performance, cost summary and suitability for training applications. A description of the aircraft modifications is presented. The problems solved and lessons learned during this program are discussed together with an outline of future goals aimed at complete system simulation with minimum aircraft hardware adaptation.
