AN ANALYSIS OF THE BENEFITS OF MOTION SIMULATORS IN FIFTH GENERATION FIGHTER PILOTS' TRAINING
ABSTRACT
In military aviation, the flight simulators’ use has proliferated over recent years in order to train fifth generation fighter pilots. With these simulators, the pilots can carry out real-time flights resulting in seeing their faults and can perform emergency drills prior to real flights. Since we can not risk losing the aircraft and the pilot himself in the flight training process, flight simulators are of great importance to adapt the fighter pilots competently to real flights aboard the fifth generation aircrafts.
The real flights are impossible to simulate thoroughly on the ground. To some extend, the fixed-based simulators may assist

It was created in 1910 with the ability of giving three rotational degrees of freedom.(Kaynak gösterilerek yapılsa çok daha iyi olur.) (Sanders teacher.pdf)
At the present time, the air forces utilize high-end, costly, state-of-the-art simulators of high fidelity for their training purposes to realize virtual reality.
Along with these motion simulators, a new simulation system has been created called Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS). Michael R. Corder describes it in a quite strange way: “Picture a big empty building that is 120 ft. high, 73 ft. wide and 36 ft. deep. Put your simulated cockpit inside this big empty space and let it move anywhere it wants to. Oh yes, don't forget to add some hydraulics to make it pitch, rotate and yaw at the same time that it is moving around inside the building. That's the VMS.”
VMS’s are mainly used for helicopters’ and low g-force requiered aircrafts’ pilots’ training due to the g-force restrictions of VMS. But thanks to F-35 Joint Strike Fighters’ vertical landing and take-off capability, VMS’s are going to be efficiently used for this fifth generation aircrafts’ training.

The synchronization among control inputs, visual and motion cues, was not accurate, the visual display systems were not satisfactory and especially were not realistic. Poor synchronization led to simulation sickness. And also because of the negative transfer of training, righteously it was not dared to make the trainees carry out unsafe missions such as recovering from the emergency in the sky.

WHY SHOULD WE USE MOTION SIMS?
The issue of trainees's motivation arises, not only in the context of motion platforms, but in other areas of military training as well. Military training media that share characteristics with video games, for example, are said to be motivating because enlisted men have experience playing video
