At cruising speed without moving from the simulator cab
A flight simulator enables virtual pilot training through a total immersion experience whether it be for large or small commercial aircraft. It is currently the most modern form of virtual pilot training.
The purpose of a flight simulator is to offer a flight experience as real as possible. With this aim, it reproduces geographic nuances, the layout of multiple airports, airfields and heliports worldwide for carrying out virtual piloting. It even recreates the effect of different virtual wind tunnels around the simulated aircraft models, thus obtaining effects similar to the real ones.
Furthermore, the flight simulator companies provide a replica of the cabin with the array of instruments. The life-size replica is mounted on hydraulic or electromechanical actuators controlled by advanced computerized systems.
The flight simulator companies bring not only structure and organization to flight simulation, but also feedback and resources that may otherwise be unavailable. Therefore, the greatest benefit airliners get out of relying on these training system providers is the assurance of having pilots who are well-trained according to the standard operating procedures.
When knowing the position is key: MAGPOT is a low impedance linear position transducer that guarantees high precision.
The flight simulator companies are providing acumen supported by three concepts:
- Perfectionist technology: the combination of software, hardware, and a real-time instructor give the sessions a truly realistic feel of flight, yet in an educational setting. Taking the feedback from the flight simulator user, the flight sim crew continues to push the bounds, making constant updates to enhance the experience.
- Utmost professionalism: the flight simulator fosters skillfulness to operate an aircraft with the goal of bringing the pilot to a point in which they simply fly, learn and enjoy themselves.
- Recreating reality: the flight simulator companies bring the perfect balance between realistic operation and simulator limitations, overcoming them by equipping the virtual pilots with a bona fide flight experience.
WM SIMULATOR is a Thai flight simulator company whose mission is to meet the needs of those with ambition and interest in piloting an aircraft whether it be for business or pleasure. At their premises in Samut Prakan, an industrial area close to Bangkok City, simulation meets reality.
The flight simulator FSTD Type6-A320 operated by WM SIMULATOR received the approval of the Department of Thailand Civil Aviation in 2012 in order to train pilots, from beginners wanting to build their skills to experts wishing to strengthen their knowledge and ability.
WM SIMULATOR has a flight simulator capable of reproducing every aspect at the training crews’ disposal, equipped with sounds, visuals, vibrations and other movements. Recent scientific studies have shown that the use of technology such as vibration and a dynamic seat within flight simulators is really effective and can provide the best training for saving lives in critical moments.
With their long-life span, free of any maintenance, MAGPOT is well suited to the needs regarding applications of industrial engineering.
In order to reproduce different situations that can arise in flight, linear magnetic position sensors are essential. This type of sensors is capable of detecting and reporting the position of a magnetic field along its axis.
REGNER® has designed and manufactured a linear potentiometer that guarantees high precision at any time. It is composed of two magnets, one exterior and the other internal. By bringing the exterior magnet into a proximity necessary to connect with the internal magnetic attractors, the engineer can obtain a linear position reading based on the location of the exterior magnet. As the exterior magnet moves so does the electrical output of the MAGPOT.
Their robust design with a high-quality built-in is the perfect choice for a range of applications including testing and measurement equipment, consumer appliances, automotive and robotics.
The MAGPOT allows engineers more design freedom because it is a highly customizable device. It is often difficult for engineers to find the right potentiometer with the precise parameters they seek, but REGNER® can provide exactly that, customizing the linear position transducer according to their needs.
In addition to this flexibility, engineers always appreciate a prompt delivery in order to have the chance to test their prototypes rapidly. WM SIMULATOR can attest to this based on their first-hand experience. In less than four days, the Product Design Manager resolved some doubts, got the 3D Models and received the relevant MAGPOTS. The Product Design Manager might not have even noticed that he was dealing with a company 7.500 miles away!
After integrating the potentiometer model into the simulator working drawing and carrying out different testing at the Siamese industrial premises, WM SIMULATOR extended their congratulations to REGNER® for the potentiometer’s “great work”.
Having knowledge that our potentiometers are being used in such technologically advanced applications, REGNER® is very proud to contribute to the aeronautics. Once again, keeping true to our motto: Improving lives through technology. What could be better?
