A questionnaire study was conducted to determine the present state-of-the-art in the field of design tool (research and development) flight simulators. The major concern at this time appears to be the simulation of realistic external displays for visual reference by the pilot. Advance study is vitally necessary in the fields of VTOL/ STOL performance.stability and control, and instrumentation and/ or displays for terrain clearance and avoidance during high speed, low altitude flight. Also required are studies of g forces, zero g environment, and the use of drugs or hypnosis to control specific channels of communication in man during studies of his more significant sensors.
