Abstract : Although flight simulators are now extensively employed in aerospace research and development programs, it is still necessary from time to time to verify the findings achieved during simulator tests against actual flight tests. This paper describes such a comparison process using a generic helicopter simulator and flight tests carried out in the National Aeronautical Establishment's Bell 205 research helicopter. The project was designed to establish some initial application boundaries for the newly commissioned helicopter simulator. Hence the validation process took place in reverse order, with the helicopter simulator runs performed after the flight tests.
