AbstractA new quality rating scale for the subjective assessment of simulation fidelity is introduced in this paper. The scale has been developed through a series of flight and simulation trials using six test pilots from a variety of backgrounds, and is based on the methodology utilised with the Cooper-Harper Handling Qualities Rating scale and the concepts of transfer of training, comparative task performance and task strategy adaptation. The development and use of the new rating scale in an evaluation of the fidelity of the Liverpool HELIFLIGHT-R research simulator, in conjunction with the Flight Research Laboratory's ASRA in-flight simulator, is described.
