Striving for Effectiveness in Flight Simulation

13 June 2017 - 14 June 2017

No.4 Hamilton Place, London



Conference Highlight

In order to establish the true fidelity of flight simulators, to standardize their characteristics, and to improve their performance, it is essential to perform proper benchmarking. By objectively comparing simulator characteristics, it is possible to assess their real contribution to their intended goal, whether it be training, engineering, or basic research.

This Royal Aeronautical Society Flight Simulation Conference will ask the question “how can we truly benchmark a simulator, given its intended role?” What is the true norm to which we must measure the device, whether it be the actual aircraft or a simulator standard? Which parameters do we measure? And how do we continue to improve the standards themselves?

The conference will include a session of invited papers, a workshop with break-out groups, presentations by industry/academic participants, and a summary session with “the way forward”. It promises to be an interactive and engaging meeting.

The first day of the conference will be followed by the annual Edwin A Link Lecture which is free to attend.
