The Airbus A330-200 flight simulation is a multi PC based flight simulator . The
aircraft simulation software runs in several PCs linked together via Ethernet. The
cockpit controls, switches knobs etc interface to the aircraft simulation software
standard commercial I/O systems.
The main executive software is complete and runs the simulation at 60 Hz, with the
Equations of Motion and Ground Reaction software running at 120 Hz.
Basic A330-200 Aerodynamics, Ground Reactions and Equations Of Motion 6 DOF Quaternion
model complete. Including repositions, freezes and wind changes
Flight Controls System complete, Normal, Alternate and Direct laws implemented and
Speed protection control laws complete. Alpha protection model is complete.
Sensor models (ADIRU, TAT, Alpha Vanes, etc) together with a simulated ARINC type
data bus complete.
System models (Hydraulics, Air, Electrical etc ) complete including their interfaces
to the System display.
FMGS is complete. It is fully coupled to the A/P for takeoff, climb, cruise, approach
Major items left to do
Physical Cockpit Build
Visual system interface
Ethernet communication to each PC completed. Although full compliment of 10 + PCs
The displays, PFD, Nav Display, EWD, and System Displays complete. They have been
re-designed to allow for sizing. This allows them to be used in other programs such
as the MCDU Aid, and PC version of the simulator.
Please note that this is not an add on for the Micro soft Flight simulator but a
complete flight simulator in its own right. The fidelity is aimed at a Fixed Based
Training Device standard, and will be a similar fidelity to the Aerowinx 747-400
