Wow... What kind of simulator is that? Would that be close to the real JSF cockpit?


I couldn't attend for family reasons... Hopefully next year better luck...

It was there from the manufacturer Lockheed Martin, as was the Eurofighter simulator from theirs. It compares well with pictures I have seen, the screens are configurable and touch sensitive, when I was in the Eurofighter it was all done with the HOTAS and I never needed to take my hands off the controls except to raise and lower the undercarriage.

Where we were there were quite a few high ranking officers from various countries and a few manufacturers selling their wares Dassault, Eurofighter Consortium, Lockheed-Martin, Pratt & Whitney to name a few.

Sorry no pics of the Eurofighter simulator it was behind closed curtains but I did get a shot in it and was surprised that the demo guy was from close to where I live in Scotland.

How close these are to the real aircraft I cannot say but they are really sales tools and what we experienced in it was very much simplified.
