Twelve essays by leading researchers provide a clear introduction to the basic principles, design, and applications of flight simulators. Among the topics covered are basic principles of flight dynamics, the simulation of aircraft systems, structures and cockpit systems, visual and motion systems, and instructor facilities. Other subjects discussed include the integration, testing, and acceptance of simulators and their use as a research and training tool.
