  • Currently, aircraft simulator has drawn a great attention because it has significant advantages of economic, temporal, and spatial costs compared with pilot training with real aircraft. Among the components of the aircraft simulator, flight dynamic model plays a key role in simulating the flight of an actual aircraft. Hence, it is important to verify the fidelity of flight dynamic model with an automated tool. In this paper, we develop a software to automatically verify the fidelity of the flight mechanics model for the efficient development of the aircraft simulator. After designing the software structure and GUI based on the requirements derived from the fidelity verification process, the software is implemented with C # language in Window-based environment. Experimental results on CTSW models show that the developed software is effective in terms of function, performance and user convenience.

  • The objective of the study is to analyze the pilot's behavior such as preference and management technique to the automation of aircraft through Flight Management Attitude Questionnaire(FMAQ) survey. Participants in the survey are grouped in rank and nationality, and attitudes of those groups toward the automation are analyzed. Previous empirical studies have demonstrated large cross-nation differences in attitudes regarding task performance across several work domains including aviation. Analysis of the survey shows that the pilots in Asia region like the automation and its usage more than the pilots in western and Oceania regions. The trust in the automation is higher among glass cockpit pilots than among the conventional aircraft pilots. More foreign pilots than Korean pilots believe that the automation may deteriorate their flight skills. While more Korean pilots than foreign pilots agree that their flight skills can be kept by manual controls. The pilots also feel that the automated cockpits would require more verbal communications between crew members. For improving the automation management skills and the effective automation usage, the Situation Awareness training and Crew Resource Management(CRM) training are strongly suggested.

  • There are keen competitions among the air operators to recruit competent pilots, which could be adversely affect the safe operation of aircraft. This study is aimed to identify the correlation between the flight experience of the pilot of the air transport operator and competency on visual approach operation. About 2,400 sets of flight training data of several pilots of an air transport operator was analysed for this study. The analysis showed that most captains were able to make stabilized visual approach regardless of his/her flight experience of any type of aircraft, while the first officers were able to make a stabilized visual approach with more than 1,500 hours of flight experience for each rated type of aircraft. This should be considered during making policies for the supply and demand of pilots for the safe operation of air transport.

  • An aircraft in flight and ATC(: Air Traffic Controllers) working in the Ground Control Center carry out a voice communication using the radio. Voice signal to be transmitted from the aircraft is received to a plurality of terrestrial sites around the country at the same time. The ATC receives the various quality of voice signal from the aircraft depending on the distance, speed, weather conditions and adjusted condition of the antenna and the radio. The ATC carries out a voice communication with aircraft in the optimal conditions finding the best voice signal. However, the present system chooses the values of the CD(: Carrier Dectect) which is determined to be superior to, based on the input voice level, as optimal channel. Thus this system can not be seen to select the optimal channel because it doesn't consider the effect of the noise which influences on the communication quality. In this paper, after removing the noise in the voice signal, we could give the digitized information and an improved voice signal quality, so that users can select an optimal channel. By using it, when operating the training eavesdropping system or the aircraft control, we can expect prevention accident and improvement of training performance by selecting the improved quality channel.

  • Even with the most advanced aviation technology benefits, aircraft accidents are constantly occurring while air passenger transportation volume is expected to double in the next 15 years. Since it is not possible to secure aviation safety only by the post aircraft accident safety action of accident investigations, it has been recognized and consensus has been formed that proactive and predictive prevention measures are necessary. In this sense, the aviation safety management system (SMS) was introduced in 2008 and has been carried out in earnest since 2011. SMS is a proactive and predictive aircraft accident preventive measure, which is a mechanism to eliminate the fundamental risk factors by approaching organizational factors beyond technological factors and human factors related to aviation safety. The methodology is to collect hazards in all the sites required for aircraft operations, to build a database, to analyze the risks, and through managing risks, to keep the risks acceptable or below. Therefore, the improper implementation of SMS indicates that the aircraft accident prevention is insufficient and it is to be directly connected with the aircraft accident. Reports of duty performance related hazards including their own errors are essential and most important in SMS. Under the policy of just culture for voluntary reporting, the guarantee of information providers' anonymity, non-punishment and non-blame should be basically secured, but to this end, under-reporting is stagnant due to lack of trust in their own organizations. It is necessary for the accountable executive(CEO) and senior management to take a leading role to foster the safety culture initiating from just culture with the safety consciousness, balancing between safety and profit for the organization. Though a Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport's order, "Guidance on SMS Implementation" states the training required for the accountable executive(CEO) and senior management, it is not legally binding. Thus it is suggested that the SMS training completion certificates of accountable executive(CEO) and senior management be included in SMS approval application form that is legally required by "Korea Aviation Safety Program" in addition to other required documents such as a copy of SMS manual. Also, SMS related items are missing in the aircraft accident investigation, so that organizational factors in association with safety culture and risk management are not being investigated. This hinders from preventing future accidents, as the root cause cannot be identified. The Aircraft Accident Investigation Manuals issued by ICAO contain the SMS investigation wheres it is not included in the final report form of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. In addition, the US National Transportation Safety Board(NTSB) that has been a substantial example of the aircraft accident investigation for the other accident investigation agencies worldwide does not appear to expand the scope of investigation activities further to SMS. For these reasons, it is believed that investigation agencies conducting their investigations under Annex 13 do not include SMS in the investigation items, and the aircraft accident investigators are hardly exposed to SMS investigation methods or techniques. In this respect, it is necessary to include the SMS investigation in the organization and management information of the final report format of Annex 13. In Korea as well, in the same manner, SMS item should be added to the final report format of the Operating Regulation of the Aircraft and Railway Accident Investigation Board. If such legal and institutional improvement methods are complemented, SMS will serve the purpose of aircraft accident prevention effectively and contribute to the improvement of aviation safety in the future.

  • Landing gear force reaction module is important for aircraft take off and landing simulation. But usually this modulo is not accounted for control law design simulation. because it does not affect the flying quality of aircraft. Now a days, this module is getting more important according to the increase of needs for training purpose simulation and specific control law design such as unmaned aircraft landing on the moving platform. In this paper 1DOF mass spring simple force system per gear was accepted.

  • The paper introduces major technical specifications of the Line II railway simulators of Pusan City in Korea. Comparing design specifics of the railway simulators with of the light aircraft Flight Training Device(FTD, the paper reveals commonality of implementation technologies applied to both simulators: Overall configurations and design philosophies are basically the same. In both programs VMEbus computing systems with UNIX are adapted as backbones of the simulators. It is found that the railway simulators are less stringent in real-time requirements than the aircraft FTD, and the railway simulators are designed to be more event-driven and object-oriented. The experiences show that models may be diverse depending on the objects but implementation technologies are about the same. Maximizing portability of implementation technologies is a matter of an organizations strategy of adopting standardized processes and modular technologies available and most economic to them.

  • Flight parameters of a light aircraft in normal category named ChangGong-91 we identified from flight tests. Modified Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MMLE) is used to produce aerodynamic coefficients, stability and control derivatives. A Flight Training Device (FTD) has been developed based on the identified flight parameters. Flat earth, rigid body, and standard atmosphere are assumed in the FTD model. Euler angles are adapted for rotational state variables to reduce computational load. Variations in flight Mach number and Reynolds number are assumed to be negligible. Body, stability and inertial axes allow 6 second-order linear differential equations for translational and rotational motions. The equations of motion are integrated with respect to time, resulting in good agreements with flight tests.

  • Fighter pilots are taking 'Advanced Pilot Training' courses to perform their missions perfectly even under adverse conditions. However, there are accidents that fall due to problems with the human body's equilibrium in the acceleration of flight, falling into the 'Vertigo, Spatial disorientation' phenomenon. As such, accidents that fighters fall due to spatial disorientation frequently occur not only in Korea but also abroad. In this study, we implemented the 'Vertigo' warning function in the fighter. First, we analyzed the aircraft's mission computer and the currently implemented warning functions. And we studied the coordinate system to utilize the aircraft attitude information. Based on this, we wanted to provide a visual warning to the HUD when the fighter flies over a certain time in the inverted flight position. Implementing this feature is expected to improve pilot flight safety. In addition, based on the results of this study, we propose a method to implement warning functions through linkage with other subsystems.

  • A turbo fan engine performance analysis program combined with a particle swarm optimization(PSO) has been developed to optimize the major design parameters of the combat aircraft gas turbine engine. The optimized parameters includes bypass ratio, fan pressure ratio, high pressure compression ratio and burner exit temperature. The objective parameters have been determined using a multi-objective function consisting of the net thrust and specific fuel consumption along a weight function. The basic model for the combat aircraft gas turbine engine has been selected as the F404 turbofan engine which is widely used in the combat aircraft, F-18 and Korean high level training aircraft, T-50. The optimal conditions of four parameters have been obtained for various design conditions.
