In this computer of the flight simulator at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, engineers "set up" certain characteristics of an aircraft whose flight performance is to be checked by the machine. The computer, developed in the Dynamic Analysis and Control Laboratory at MIT, contains electronic elements for adding, multiplying, and integrating, all necessary to solve the complex problems of how an airplane would fly under specified conditions of speed, altitude, and control.
