Airplane and helicopter simulators
SmallCaptain library was used in 1995 for developing visualization module for aircraft landing trainer for Pulkovo Airport (St.Petersburg) training center. Aircraft physics software module was developed by Civil Aviation Academy. 180-degree cockpit view is displayed on five PC monitors. Various weather and light conditions are simulated: fog, haze, snow, rain, night, etc. so that pilots could get experience to land the aircraft in the case of poor visibility.
In 1998 similar visualization module was done for helicopter flight simulator. Its new feature is simulation of dust whirlwind arising when the helicopter is landing
