Welcome to the RAeS Flight Simulation Group

The Flight Simulation Group (FSG) is the specialist group of the Society which deals with the design, manufacture, installation and operation of simulation equipment and synthetic environments, and the economic and human factors which bear on the use of simulators for research and development and for civil and military flight crew training. The Group maintains a significant international footprint and keeps abreast of flight simulation requirements in both civil and military areas worldwide, including the requirements of national and multinational civil regulatory authorities.

The FSG Committee has a very extensive remit and its diverse activities are reflected in the Discussion Forum. It maintains a list of challenges facing the flight simulation community and seeks actively by all appropriate means to facilitate their progression, one of which, Upset Recovery, has been deemed sufficiently important to warrant its own Upset Recovery Discussion Forum. It also serves the flight simulation industry and its workforce through a wide programme of activities that seek to educate, inform, inspire and promote flight simulation. These include leading an International Working Group on standards for flight simulation training devices and jointly sponsoring with Cranfield University a short course to provide an introduction to flight simulation.

Chairman (2013 - 2015): Mr Steve Adlem MRAeS

    Education and Skills Conference 2014

    The need to attract, inspire, recruit and train new staff on a sustainable basis has long been recognised by the aviation and aerospace sectors. New opportunities and pathways are now becoming available that will enable the industry to start filling the “skills gap”. The Society's second annual Education and Skills Conference will look at how various organisations and industry partners are working together to address skills needs for the aerospace and aviation sector, from engaging with and trai

    Named Lecture

    Cierva Named Lecture 2014

    The Cierva Lecture is named after Juan de la Cierva, FRAeS, an aeronautical engineer who pioneered rotary flight. In 1926 with the backing of the Weir brothers he formed the Cierva Autogiro Company and it was his development of rotor blade design and articulated rotor blades, which played a major role in the first successful helicopter in 1936.
