Day 2 – Wednesday 18 September 2013 Session 5 - Technology ABSTRACT Dr. Nidal Sammur, Director of Engineering, FlightSafety International Managing Simulator Complexity Flight simulators have been used for pilot training since the early 1900’s. The technology and complexity of flight simulators has evolved over the years from simple mechanical based systems to the current state of the art full electric motion with collimated visual display systems. What has not changed is the primary goal of using flight simulators to provide a safe and effective environment to train pilots for their tasks. This presentation seeks to address the complexity of the training environment and how future technologies can continue to provide better training equipment for pilots. Review of continued technology evolution within the simulation industry Limits of existing technology Technology improvements Managing complexity of training environment Example technologies: glass mirror, IOS, objective motion cueing, scenario generation etc.
