A Conversation on Motion Bases and Pilots' Reactions - Part 1

Posted by Rachel Baker on Feb 6, 2017 5:26:40 PM

This is a copy of a letter that was sent by Mr. Bruce Baker of Servos & Simulation to Mr. Edward Boothe at the National Simulator Evaluation Program Flight in Atlanta, GA. It is in regards to a simulator upgrade for a CH-46 at MCAS Tustin. The main problem was that the motion base was not following the visual cues and made it hard for the pilots to train on (simulator sickness). The problem was resolved...

Why are Motion Base Platforms Required in the Simulation Industry?

Posted by Rachel Baker on Jan 28, 2017 10:44:28 AM

Motion base platforms, wether they be two, three or six axis and more, have been apart of the simulation industry for a very long time. Longer than one might think... I decided to do some research on the industry that I have been apart of for almost 30 years and this is what I found.
