Flight Simulators

Date:     Wednesday 21 Apr 2010
Time:     18:30 – Tea 6:00pm for 6:30 start
Speaker:     Mike Basini – Senior Lecturer in Aviation Technology
Location:     Coventry University Aerospace Technology Lab – Room ALG109, Alma Building, Alma Street
Abstract:     Mike provided a highly entertaining and informative introduction to the evening; providing much background information about aerospace technology and flight simulation concepts. Using archive photographs and recent video clips, Mike covered the history of flight simulation, flight simulators and part task trainers, aircraft modelling and human factors. There was adequate opportunity for members of the audience to experience the flight simulators first hand.

We also had an interesting tour of the facilities in both the Aerospace Laboratory at Coventry University, and the Alma Street building in general.
