Abstract : The increasing demands on and the complexity of future highly augmented rotorcraft call for extensive simulation activities in the field of flying qualities utilizing operational helicopters, ground-based, and in-flight simulators. If both, variable system characteristics and high realism of pilot/helicopter situations are required in-flight simulators demonstrate definite advantages. The key contributions of in-flight simulators in the fields of rotorcraft system and subsystem design and for establishment of handling qualities criteria and discussed on the basis of DFVLR experience and activities. By presentation and discussion of recent results achieved with the in-flight simulator ATTHeS, operated by DFVLR, the potential of this research vehicle in particular and of advanced rotorcraft in-flight simulators in general is demonstrated with respect to design and development of future helicopter systems.
