Motion System Standards and Testing

– This paper is dedicated to the memory of Edward Milton Boothe, who wrote the original draft that became the core document for the Flight Simulator Qualification Standards recognized by EASA, FAA and ICAO.  Ed is often considered as the father of modern day simulator standards and below is a paper he wrote about motion systems.  We are very proud that he was a founder Partner of Training Technology International until his death in 2000.  We all gained much from his wide experience and sound judgment. He is still missed.

Visual and Motion cues in the real world and in FSTD’s

Papers were presented by the author, Ian W Strachan MBE AFC FRAeS, to conferences organised by the Royal Aeronautical Society Flight Simulation Group in London in April 1987, November 1989 and May 1990. These papers were entitled “Future Flight Simulation”, “Visual and motion Cueing” and “Future Helicopter Simulation”.

The papers were refined to concentrate on cueing and expanded with more detail. In this form, a paper was presented at the Royal Aeronautical Society in May 1995. A further update was presented at the I/ITSEC training and simulation conference in Orlando, USA, in December 1997.  Subsequently the paper has been expanded and updated regularly with new information and distributed to those interested in simulator cueing, the latest revision in January 2014. Extra diagrams and material on visual cueing have been added, and new simulator test results incorporated in Annex G as they became available.
