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

Tom Enders, CEO, EADS asks how we can build a thriving industry that supports a flourishing society. Please note that this Lecture will be preceded by a presentation of RAeS Medals & Awards.
The Landing Gear System is one of the most important systems on any aeroplane. With the consequences of failure being, at the least, very expensive, a landing gear system must be extremely reliable and safe, but also incur minimum cost to the operator, which demands light weight and minimal maintenance.
This lecture will cover design processes involved in defining new Landing Gear, with the A380 development as an example.
Held at the Symposium room Airbus SAS/HQ, 3km from Toulouse Airport.
