West Virginia University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering will demonstrate its new full-motion flight simulator at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 23, in the Aerodynamics Lab, adjacent to the Engineering Sciences Building .


The simulator includes a raised two-seat cockpit with six degrees of motion to simulate a realistic flight experience. Six monitors provide outstanding visual displays that can be selected by the operator from a worldwide airport and topographic database.


The simulator can be reconfigured to represent a wide range of aircraft, and programmed for a wide range of flight conditions. It will be used in teaching and research in the aerospace engineering department.


The Aerodynamics Lab is located in a one-story metal building on the south side of the Engineering Sciences Building . A reception will follow the demonstration.


Parking is available in WVU Lot 40 on the east side of the Engineering Building , the side facing away from the river.


Enter the east entrance of the Engineering Building , and follow the signs to the Aerodynamics Lab.
