Low-Cost Flight Simulator with Possibility of Modeling of Flight Controls Failures
The goal of this paper is to present a development of a low cost flight simulator, that allows to simulate flight controls failures. Cessna 172 has been chosen as an example of a general aviation aircraft and the flight model has been implemented in Simulink. The model allows for easy integration of an experimental autopilot, using various strategies. Aerodynamic coefficients have been calculated using software called DATCOM. Such approach reduces greatly the cost of development. An approximate inertia matrix has been calculated for proper rigid body dynamics, and a model of engine and propeller is based on actual data from producer. In the end evaluation has been performed, indicating that modeled airplane behaves in a proper way.
