Commercial Transport Aircraft Flight Simulator Flying Qualities Airworthiness Verification
Flight simulation is a simulation of flight and various aspects of the flight environment. Flight simulation is used for a variety of reasons, including aircraft development and flight training. The engineering flight simulator is used for a certain commercial transport aircraft development. The aircraft adopts fly-by-wire flight control technology. The engineering flight simulator was mainly used as a platform to test flying quality of the aircraft. The simulator has actual aircraft cockpit with wide-field visual system mounted on large six degree of freedom(DOF) motion platform that feature comprehensive flight and systems models. In order to demonstrate the flying quality of the aircraft, Flying quality verification experiments were carried out on the simulator. This test provided a means by which one may evaluate flight characteristics for fly-by-wire flight control commercial transport aircraft. Experiment results were evaluated .
