Flight Simulator Experience

A flight simulator is a device that artificially re-creates aircraft flight and the environment in which it flies, for pilot training, design, or other purposes. It includes replicating the equations that govern how aircraft fly, how they react to applications of flight controls, the effects of other aircraft systems, and how the aircraft reacts to external factors such as air density, turbulence, wind shear, cloud, precipitation, etc. Flight simulation is used for a variety of reasons, including flight training (mainly of pilots), the design and development of the aircraft itself, and research into aircraft characteristics and control handling qualities


full-motion simulators offer the ultimate flight simulation experience. They are worth around €12-million (Euros) each, and are certified by the aviation authorities to Level-D standard – the highest level there is. They are so realistic that they can be used by airlines for ‘Zero Flight Time’ training, meaning that airline pilots can complete all of their training on the simulator
