PIO simulation session

During the Dec 2020 DFCS course we introduced a new sim session, where we are replicating the conditions experienced by test pilots Phil Oestricher during YF-16 flight zero, and Tom Morgenfeld during the YF-22 pitch PIO.

The simulated aircraft characteristics are modeled based on the published NASA reports, and while students in classroom get a good understanding of the conditions which led to those events, during the simulation all of them get “Wow!” and “Aha!” moments.
