ETPS Flight Simulator

Built in-house by QinetiQ, our bespoke flight simulator enables us to replicate both rotary and fixed wing aircraft in one system, through a cockpit swapping system . The simulator immerses the pilot with a wide field of view projected onto the inside of the dome, and a six degree of freedom motion system.

This training platform ensures that students understand vital flight test principles before they proceed to the airborne domain. We use the simulator for a wide variety of exercises, including:

  • Learning about variations in flying control mechanical characteristics
  • Learning how to assess deficiencies in aircraft handling qualities the design and evaluation of higher order flight control systems, and
  • The introduction and practice of flight test techniques, such as control response testing and frequency sweeps.
