The F-16 Variable Stability Research Flight Sim was set-up successfully at ITPS. Based on a standard Flight Dynamix Viper simulator, advanced aerodynamic models as described by NASA publication  were implemented allowing for the design and testing of various FCS using Simulink and a standard force-sensing HOTAS. Up & Away pitch tracking tasks, as well as low level off-set approaches were used as part of the FCS evaluations using the Cooper-Harper Handling Qualities Rating scale . Overall great training for the pilots (including myself) and a great asset for ITPS. In the photo above, myself as instructor and simulator operator, while Murat Soloturk (former Turkish F-16 demo pilot) flies the sim.
