Although the need for motion on flight simulators used for training is well accepted, there is a wide divergence of opinion on the kind and amount of motion required. This paper reviews the requirements for motion in each of the six degrees of freedom, and suggests the extent of motion desirable in each, as well as ways to exploit given motion system geometry.
