Abstract : Flight Simulation makes a vital contribution to the understanding of flying quality requirements and to the clearance of modern aircraft flight controls. The background to the use of simulators, both airborne and ground-based is presented, and the experimental techniques, including validation and hardware requirements are discussed. The limitations which equipments can impose are presented, and examples are given of the use of flight simulation in flying qualities research. Finally, the techniques required for the clearance of current designs are highlighted, and a direction for future research is indicated. (SDW)
