RAeS Heathrow Branch Announces the December 2016 Lecture – The Development of Aircraft Simulation

The Royal Aeronautical Society Heathrow Branch announces the upcoming branch lecture on Thursday, 08th December 2016, 18:00 hours at Waterside Theatre, British Airways Waterside Headquarters, Harmondsworth UB7 0GA. The lecture is titled – The Development of  Aircraft Simulation – An Essential Part of Training and Aircraft Design, and will be given by Captain Hugh Dibley, a renown Commercial Airline Pilot, Instructor and Consultant and a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society Flight Simulation Specialist Group and the Council. 

In the December lecture, Captain Hugh Dibley will present the developments of aircraft simulation as an essential part of training and even aircraft design. He will describe the operational capabilities of the latest visual and motion systems, which are today being applied not only to aircraft simulators but to ground vehicles, naval and space ship simulators.

Captain Dibley will use current examples of the technologies involved in delivering high quality FSTD training. Aircraft and their environment are growing ever more complex and the technologies used to simulate them and provide training are constantly evolving. Simulation offers a safe environment for practising system failures, abnormal weather, traffic and terrain avoidance, and virtual operation at any airfield in the world.

Captain Dibley will also talk about the Airbus ‘iron bird’ systems integration and test bench and show a video of the first flight of the A380, ‘Reality on 27 April 2005’, where virtual becomes reality as the simulation is put onto the aircraft itself to carry out the validation and integration of the systems at aircraft level. His talk will conclude with a section on Space Flight Tourism Simulation where prospective passengers can experience up to 4G during acceleration and deceleration prior to their space flight!
