Abstract : Effectiveness of Flight Simulation with pilot-in-the-loop can be intended rather differently depending on the context in which the simulation activities are carried out, namely in the two traditional areas of Research and Development (R and D) and Training. In the latter case effectiveness can be considered the amount of training a simulator is able to transfer per time unit, whilst in the case of R and D simulation its effectiveness is related to the amount of confidence engineers can gain in the prediction of an airborne system behavior before releasing it to the real flight.
