Synthetic Aerodynamics Modeling for Pilot Training in the Extended Flight Envelope
Flight at high angles of attack is associated with a variety of types of aircraft departure and post stall behaviour. Every aircraft will exhibit specific set of flight characteristics in extended flight envelope. This work was motivated by the need for using flight simulator in training pilots in those high angles of attack conditions to give pilots awareness about nonlinear aircraft behaviours and peculiarities of flight at stall and above stall. Flight simulators, equipped with representative aerodynamic models covering normal and extended flight envelope can be utilised for this purpose. A special approach of building a synthetic aerodynamic model over an available high angle of attack aerodynamic model is discussed in this paper. The Synthetic modelling presented in this paper assumes complementary transformation of a number of key aerodynamic characteristics of the original aerodynamic model with an objective to diversify post stall dynamics.
