The pilot's well being during simulator training is essential

The pilot’s well being during simulator sessions is an important pillar for successful trainings. Loft Dynamics has optimized their devices by synchronizing the interaction of the visual and motion system to prevent malaise.

Helicopter pilots often mention discomfort in simulators

It is essential for the pilot to feel well while flying the simulator in order to perform effectively. However, this is not always obvious. Many helicopter simulators, including those used for professional training, do not provide the required level of realism to give the pilot's body the impression of flying in reality. Perspective errors in the visual presentation or delays from control input to visual representation can cause irritations. Latency or incorrect motion movements also have a negative impact on well-being, leading to a decrease in training quality and learning progress.

Loft Dynamic training devices prevent pilots from experiencing motion sickness

Loft Dynamics' state-of-the-art technology provides helicopter pilots with a whole-body immersion, giving them the feeling of flying as they would in reality. The high-resolution virtual reality view with a fast frame rate and realistic sun effects, such as shadows in the cockpit, create a natural visual experience. A highly dynamic motion system and motion cueing that accurately represent the sensation of flying complete the overall experience. The pilot's body is displayed in the virtual world to prevent any disorientation that may occur if the pilot's body is missing. Instructors who operate the simulators receive detailed training to ensure realistic flight conditions are maintained.

We have conducted extensive tests and research to achieve a high level of training comfort and realistic simulation. Our team has developed deep knowledge in this subject.
