Flight Simulator

A flight simulator is a system whose purpose is to copy, or to simulate, the experience of flying an aircraft, but without leaving the ground. The different types of flight simulator range from video games up to full-size cockpit replicas mounted on computer controlled actuators.

Flight simulators are extensively used for aerospace design and development and in aviation for the training of pilots and other flight deck crew in both civil and military aircraft.
