Driving and Flying with a Six-axis Full-motion Simulator
The earliest flight simulators consisted of a pilot’s seat attached to a movable platform; its motion resembled that of an aircraft when the joystick is activated. Today, full-motion simulators, generally moved by hydraulic plungers, are thus designed as hexapods. The full-motion Airmotion Ride Simulator comprises a platform to which a car driver’s seat is mounted. This platform, which follows the hexapod structure’s movements, is suspended from three steel supports by six pneumatic muscles from Festo. Come and experience it yourself on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday!
