Future Systems Simulator (FSS)

Flight test simulator

The FSS is a highly reconfigurable modular flight simulator in which pilots can explore the potential impact on future flight decks from near-term changes, such as smarter, more autonomous engines and revolutionary technologies, such as electric, fuel cells and hybrid propulsion. Independent of any airframe or manufacturer, the FSS builds reassuringly on familiar aircraft controls. Pilots interact with information presented on up to four large reconfigurable touch screens and two smaller side screens. By repositioning or removing seats, screens, side sticks, and thrust levers, it can represent anything from small single-seat aircraft to the largest jumbo jets.
