Disclosed are apparatus and methods for simulating a control system such as an aircraft flight control system. Image generating and display apparatus for use in conjunction with the simulated control system are disclosed. Also disclosed are apparatus and a method for simulating a movable control such as an aircraft control wheel or rudder pedals for a system in which force and movement parameters of the control can be varied in accordance with simulated operation of the system. A lever having an adjustably positioned fulcrum is utilized in the simulation of the movable control. The application further discloses a flight simulator having a pilot's console and an instructor's console interconnected by a computer. The simulator enables the pilot to "fly" an aircraft while permitting the instructor and computer to introduce various different flight and aircraft conditions into the flight simulator.
