This paper summarises the work done in the development of a flight simulation software package called AEROSIM by Rapid Data Ltd. The objective of this work is to use simulation and analysis facilities to reduce the development time and costs involved in aerospace vehicle modelling by providing a generic and extendible model combined with a user‐friendly graphical interface. Large parts of six degrees of freedom simulation models are common to all vehicles and AEROSIM exploits this by providing these parts ready written and developed. As a result the users have only to concern themselves with the specific details of their vehicle. AEROSIM generates a non‐linear model for aircraft, missile, airship, parafoil and underwater vehicle simulation.
