The quality of helicopter pilot training could be improved with increased use of appropriate simulators. A novel design, the MPI Motion Simulator, is evaluated by comparison with a previous study designed to investigate the required motion fidelity for helicopter flight simulation. An experiment simulating a helicopter sidestep maneuver, using roll and lateral motion, was conducted to demonstrate the contribution such a design could have. Favorable results show this setup may indeed play such a role.
