Development of a civil light helicopter flight simulator environment for pilot training. The users of this flight simulator can be naïve pilots as well as experienced pilots. Indeed, the flight simulator can be used by novel pilots to save hours of training in an actual helicopter or by experienced pilots for advanced training such as sling load operations.
For training simulation, it is important to employ a mathematical model that offers adequate accuracy but without being too complex to easily tune the parameters which very often can not be found in literature. Thus, the mathematical model should represent the basic response characteristics of a helicopter to replicate the unstable behavior with its most important couplings in the different axes.
