The Influence of Piloted Flight Simulator Studies on the Design of the SST Instruments 670306

For the Boeing SST, flight simulators are providing important insight into problems of stability, control, and flight information display in advance of the actual cutting of metal for flying hardware. Simulator investigations have yielded tentative solutions to several flight instrumentation problems: the optimum scale factor for the pilot's pitch indicator; the economical evaluation of experimental landing displays through the use of CRT line-writing techniques; and the development of a display system for informing the pilot of his situation with respect to a prescribed sonic-boom-limited climb or descent profile.
