The Motion Base Platform Requirement

Posted by Rachel Baker on Feb 6, 2017 5:44:08 PM

Why are motion base platforms required for flight simulation?

This was written by Mr. E Bruce Baker back in 1999. It was in response to customers questions about the use of motion for a aircraft trainer. Mr. Baker has over 50 years in the simulation industry and has integrated more than 300 systems in that time. He founded Servos & Simulation in 1981. This experience drives all of our designs for our customers.

 

Over the last several decades, there has been much discussion about the need for motion bases for aircraft simulators. Several times, an attempt has been made to prove or disprove the need for a motion base, and indeed, the need has been both proved an disproved. From all these studies and from personal experience, a few fundamental truths have emerged:
