Today SimCom has a lot of full-motion sims. But the experience wasn’t always so moving. Early on SimCom was defined by its commitment to nonmotion, visual platforms. David was a believer in this approach, despite great skepticism. He told me about one nonbeliever, an owner whose pilots were doing training on a nonmotion sim, who wanted to see if there were any truth to SimCom’s claims. He climbed into the back of the simulator box, the lights went out, the pilots advanced the throttles, rotated and the skeptic promptly fell flat on his behind. But that wasn’t all. He insisted that the instructor turn on the lights, and he proceeded to crawl around the floor searching for the motion devices that SimCom engineers, he reasoned, must have hidden around there somewhere.
