Simulators are designed to various levels of fidelity based on the training objective. Review the video about UAS simulation and consider the different model and simulation fidelity required for training.

For this discussion, provide your supported opinion on one of these questions by using specific examples (does not need to be from the video). Consider the various types of fidelity in your discussion.

  1. What is the determining factor as to how much fidelity is required in an aviation related simulator?  Consider the FAA’s definitions of flight training devices and flight simulators.
  2. What are some of the risks and benefits of lower fidelity training devices? What about very high fidelity?
