Caption: HeliFlight helicopter flight simulator. Tutor guiding a trainee pilot from the control room of a HeliFlight simulator (yellow). It can simulate a helicopter or a fixed-wing aircraft. The tutor can see the pilot's views on screens (upper right), and can advise the pilot of any adjustments which may be required. The cabin is mounted on six hydraulic legs that give realistic movement, esse- ntial when training pilots. As well as training, the system can be programmed to simulate new air- craft designs to study their behaviour. HeliFlight was jointly developed by Advanced Rotorcraft Technology and Motionbase Plc. This simulator is at the University of Liverpool, England.
