DEVELOPMENT OF AIRCRAFT SIMULATION – AN ESSENTIAL PART OF TRAINING & AIRCRAFT DESIGN
CAPTAIN HUGH DIBLEY, CONSULTANT,
ROYAL AERONAUTICAL SOCIETY
In the RAeS Heathrow Branch December lecture, Captain Hugh Dibley will present the developments of aircraft simulation as an essential part of training and even aircraft design. He will describe the operational capabilities of the latest visual and motion systems, which are today being applied not only to aircraft simulators but to ground vehicles, naval and space ship simulators.
Captain Dibley will use current examples of the technologies involved in delivering high quality FSTD training. Aircraft and their environment are growing ever more complex and the technologies used to simulate them and provide training are constantly evolving. Simulation offers a safe environment for practising system failures, abnormal weather, traffic and terrain avoidance, and virtual operation at any airfield in the world.
Captain Dibley will also talk about the Airbus ‘iron bird’ systems integration and test bench and show a video of the first flight of the A380, ‘Reality on 27 April 2005’, where virtual becomes reality as the simulation is put onto the aircraft itself to carry out the validation and integration of the systems at aircraft level. His talk will conclude with a section on Space Flight Tourism Simulation where prospective passengers can experience up to 4 G during acceleration and deceleration prior to their space flight!
