Our fixed based devices have excellent training value, however, by adding our Motion Cueing System, the training value increases. Frasca’s Motion Cueing System is a compact motion system designed to increase pilot training efficiency by providing very accurate vestibular & proprioceptive feedback through cueing and vibration. The results are incredibly realistic motion cues and accurate pilot reactions during flight - ultimately allowing for better and more efficient pilot training.
Frasca’s MCS has a faster response than a conventional 60” system. This allows for more realistic cues during complex tasks such as hover. In addition, pilot workload to fly the FTD is reduced to be comparable to that of the aircraft – the pilot can focus on the mission aspect of his training rather than simply controlling the FTD.
TESTED AND PROVEN
Studies have shown the importance of motion cues during certain helicopter maneuvers. Without a quality motion system, pilots are forced to adapt. With quality motion there is less need to adapt. Pilots can start training immediately.
AS350 FTD with Frasca's Motion Cueing System
A simulator equipped with FMCS costs much less than a Full Flight Simulator (FFS), can fit into a smaller facility and has lower operating costs than a FFS.
FMCS consists of a 6 Degree of Freedom (6DoF) motion base optimized for helicopter simulation and is based on technology used in FRASCA’s Level D Full Flight Simulators.
