Abstract
The project involved the development of a helicopter flight simulator and its application to study IFR landing approaches. The helicopter simulator was implemented in the rear workstation of the UTIAS Flight Research Simulator. It employed all the major subsystems of that facility including the motion system, visual display system, sound system, and computer system. In addition the flight controls and seat of a Bell 205 helicopter were installed and interfaced to the flight computer. An electronic flight instrumentation system (EFIS) was developed to act as the pilot/helicopter interface. A side arm controller was also included in the simulation. The helicopter flight equations were based on the ARMCOP software package. The system was tuned with the help of an experienced Bell 205 test pilot.
