  • Advanced flight simulator: SUPRA final event - 27 June 2012, Soesterberg, the Netherlandsexternal link
    Published on: 25/06/2012
    Loss of control in flight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of fatal accidents in commercial aviation today. In the course of loss of control events, the aircraft often enters into unusual attitudes or stalls, also called upsets. However, due to a lack of validated aircraft models outside the normal operating envelope, current flight simulators do not adequately represent aircraft behavior at the edge of the envelope. The European FP-7 project SUPRA – Simulation of Upset Recovery in Aviation – has ad...
