DLR Flying Helicopter Simulator

DLR's Flying Helicopter Simulator (ACT/FHS) is a modified EC135 helicopter that can simulate other aircraft in real flight. In myCopter it was used to investigate the flight dynamics and human-machine interface of a future PAV. The cockpit was equipped with a highway-in-the-sky display and a steering wheel for intuitive car-like control. This is the first helicopter to be flown with steering wheel.
