Our researchers have access to a flight simulator, comprising a two-seater cockpit with five multifunction displays. The simulator has the capablity to simutlate both fixed and rotary wing aircraft and enables our researchers to test cockpit concepts with pilots in a wide range of realistic flight scenarios, with detailed performance and behavior monitoring.
