The Capt Ray Jones Memorial Lecture will take place on 14th November 2017 and will be presented by Jeffery Schroeder FRAeS, Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor, Federal Aviation Administration and will be entitled 'A Personal History of Matters Learned and Learned Again'. This lecture will cover what Mr Schroeder believes are important points when using a simulator for training, systems development, and research. The points are derived from conducting, or helping conduct, simulations of many vehicles including the AV-8B Harrier, a CH-47 Chinook, an AH-64 Apache, a UH-60 Blackhawk, an NT-33, a Boeing 747, a Boeing 737, an Airbus 330, a Mach 2.4 Civil Transport, a very-large civil transport, a ducted-fan personal flying platform, the Space Shuttle, a Lunar Lander, and a host of pretend vehicles for simulation research.
Registration is free and open to members and non-members.
