- A machine designed to resemble the cockpit of an aircraft, with computer-generated images that mimic the pilot's view, typically with mechanisms that move the entire structure in imitation of an aircraft's motion, used for training pilots
- Flight simulation is an artificial re-creation of aircraft flight and various aspects of the flight environment.
- simulator consisting of a machine on the ground that simulates the conditions of flying a plane
- (Flight Simulators) are extensively used in the aviation industry to train pilots, but made their mark early in computer game history and continue to be a very popular genre that provides accurate and interactive simulation of flying crafts (Jet - Sublogic Corporation/1985, Microsoft Flight

Flight Simulator II as Navigation Trainer
This is a modified version of subLOGIC's Flight Simulator II featuring metric instruments and a simple head-up display. The simulator was linked to the cockpit section of a retired Zlin Z-37 aircraft i.e. the control stick, rudder pedals, power lever, flaps lever and various cockpit switches were hooked up to the computer and a large computer monitor mounted in front of the cockpit window. To drastically improve realism, the simulation rate (and display frame rate) was increased fourfold by porting the Commodore 64 version with a lot of effort to a more powerful computer platform: Ro?moller's Turbo Process based on a 65C02 processor with 4 MHz clock rate. Several simulator features were added (analog flight and engine control input) or improved (reposition accuracy, ILS localizer alignment). In addition, a very annoying software bug could be fixed (engine failure after using the editor). This setup was used at the Interflug Flight Academy at Leipzig-Mockau airport from 1988 to 1990. It served mainly as a part-task trainer to complement classroom IFR navigation training with hands-on flight exercises.
129/365 - Flight Simulator
We got my dad a go in a flight simulator for his birthday. My mum and I went to watch - it was rather interesting. Bit hard to photograph though as it was very dark!
