Welcome to the RAeS Flight Simulation Group
The Flight Simulation Group (FSG) is the specialist group of the Society which deals with the design, manufacture, installation and operation of simulation equipment and synthetic environments, and the economic and human factors which bear on the use of simulators for research and development and for civil and military flight crew training. The Group maintains a significant international footprint and keeps abreast of flight simulation requirements in both civil and military areas worldwide, including the requirements of national and multinational civil regulatory authorities.
The FSG Committee has a very extensive remit and its diverse activities are reflected in the Discussion Forum. It maintains a list of challenges facing the flight simulation community and seeks actively by all appropriate means to facilitate their progression, one of which, Upset Recovery, has been deemed sufficiently important to warrant its own Upset Recovery Discussion Forum. It also serves the flight simulation industry and its workforce through a wide programme of activities that seek to educate, inform, inspire and promote flight simulation. These include leading an International Working Group on standards for flight simulation training devices and jointly sponsoring with Cranfield University a short course to provide an introduction to flight simulation.
Chairman (2013 - 2015): Mr Steve Adlem MRAeS

NEWS AND EVENTS
Christchurch Branch AGM and Special Lecture
This Aerodynamics Group Lecture will highlight the findings from a survey paper on railway train aerodynamics by Prof. Chris Baker of Birmingham University.
Established in 1963, this Named Lecture is run alternately with Cranfield. It honours Sir Frederick Handley Page CBE, HonFRAeS, in recognition of his many contributions to aviation, and in particular to safety and reliability in air transportation. After WW2 he was instrumental in setting up the College of Aeronautics at Cranfield, where he was a Governor up to the time of his death.
