Simulation for Training and Maneuvering of Wing in Ground Effect (WIG) Crafts

January 21st, 2011

Wing in ground effect (WIG) crafts are apĀ­plicable as very fast vehicles for sea transport. The instruction and training of WIG craft pilots on the basis of an international approved program is up to now an unsolved problem. The training on the vehicle would not only expensive but also risky. A realistic simulation makes the operator familiar with the behavior in the water and in the air, even in extreme weather events and critical operating conditions.
