Flight Simulators – A Safer Way to Test

September 18, 2008

In this NASA video segment explore how flight simulators are one of the most effective tools for pilots and engineers to experminent on aircraft. NASA flight simulators are designed as exact replica of aircrafts enabling engineers to run tests and experiments without risking pilot safety. This segment discusses NASA’s use of flight simulators when developing new engineering concepts. NASA flight simulators are also compared to other flight simulators.
