    Abstract

    The Finnish Air Force (FiAF) has been funding the development of several different F-18 Hornet simulations for research purposes. One of these simulations is a fully functional model of F-18 Hornet Landing Gear by Patria Aviation. The landing gear model is used in studying the landing gear function during different landing conditions. The FiAF has also been funding the development of a low-cost flight simulation software. The combination of these two simulation models provides a very accurate and realistic landing simulation of the F-18 Hornet aircraft. This paper discusses the co-simulation of these two models using commercial-off-the-shelf software and how the low-cost flight simulation is used to provide a realistic approach flight for the landing gear model. The co-simulation has been validated and was found to perform realistically.
