No standard guidelines currently exist for tuning rotorcraft flight simulation motion platforms. This often leads to systems that are poorly utilized. This paper presents results from a study to determine the influence of parameter variations in two rotorcraft research simulators. Investigations were conducted using three Mission Task Elements (MTEs), and both subjective and objective analysis is used to determine the suitability of motion settings. Motion settings are compared with recommended Objective Motion Cueing Test (OMCT) boundaries for fixed-wing aircraft. Results show differences in the fidelity of motion settings, and recommendations specifically for rotorcraft simulation are presented.
