Flight simulator. View of the cockpit of a flight simulator where a co-pilot is undergoing training. Blurring of the image gives the effect of motion. The cockpit represents one from a commercial transport or passenger aircraft. Here, a runway approach is being simulated. Computers run the simulator creating the motion, vision and sound cues associated with flight, takeoff, landing, and in-flight emergencies. The simulation is an accurate, cheap and safe way of training and checking crew performance.
