Abstract : Simulation requirements for military and for commercial transport aircraft are contrasted. The special problems introduced by active control are discussed with reference to earlier flight data. Transport simulator experiments to explore these problems are described. The flight simulator is an integral part of the commercial transport aircraft industry. It is used for configuration development, for flight crew training and certification, and in technology development and research. In the commercial aircraft world, regulations permit simulators to substitute for actual flight time in training and type-rating situations.
