Two designs of a low-cost flight simulator for research, development and training purposes are being presented in this paper. The first simulator has been designed and built at the Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Information Technologies. This simulator is based on a cockpit of a popular Evektor SportStar light sport aircraft. The flight simulator designed at Rzeszow University of Technology, Department of Avionics and Control, is based on the cabin of the M-15 aircraft. Both simulators support two operational modes. The first mode uses a model of the flight dynamics delivered from an external, commercial or open-source software. The second mode supports custom aircraft models and an environment dynamics run in a selected real-time simulation. Open and modular architecture of simulators allows for a rapid prototyping of new cockpit layouts and design of intuitive flight control systems and user interfaces for the light and ultra-light aircraft.
