A study has been made of a C-ll Instrument Flight Trainer to investigate its capabilities as a variable stability model and simulator. The cockpit, with its controls and instruments, and the power supplies were found to be suitable for this purpose. All other components were not. The existing computers have been simplified to handle only linearized approximations of the aircraft stability equations of motion. An analog computer will have to be designed to solve the equations of motion in higher order differential form. In addition, systems will be required to provide simulated cockpit motion and visual terrain reference.
