COMPARISON OF A LINEAR AND A NONLINEAR WASHOUT FOR MOTION SIMULATORS UTILIZING OBJECTIVE AND SUBJECTIVE DATA FROM CTOL TRANSPORT LANDING APPROACHES

Objective and subjective data gathered in the processes of comparing a linear and a nonlinear washout for motion simulators reveal that there is no difference in the pilot performance measurements used during instrument landing system (ILS) approaches with a Boeing 737 conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) airplane between fixed base, linear washout, and nonlinear washout operations. However, the subjective opinions of the pilots reveal an important advance in motion cue presentation. The advance is not in the increased cue available over a linear filter for the same amount of motion base travel but rather in the elimination of false rotational rate cues presented by linear filters.
