Flying a Cougar safely in critical environments depends on crew coordination and sensitive decisions of both pilots and the loadmaster. To support training of the pilot flying, and his crew, the Desdemona motion simulator is coupled in real-time to different loadmaster cabin simulators (both mock-up and Virtual Reality solutions). Training scenarios include bowl landings, pinnacle approaches, brownout/whiteout landings and adverse weather conditions. Key learning points, for both pilots and loadmaster, concern susceptibility to Spatial Disorientation in those scenarios. It is not just the pilot that is susceptible to disorientation; so is his crew!
