Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor for Flight Simulation Systems

Dr. Jeffery Schroeder has 25 years of experience and has over 50 publications on ground and in-flight simulation, flight dynamics, control systems, cockpit displays, human factors, and air traffic management. In the FAA, he has served on several working groups addressing upset prevention and recovery.

While at NASA Ames Research Center for over 20 years, Dr. Schroeder conducted a variety of piloted flight simulation studies with special emphasis on motion fidelity in the world's largest flight simulator. He also developed techniques for improving pilot-vehicle performance in the design of cockpit display dynamics.

Dr. Schroeder served in the Senior Executive Service as the Aviation Systems Division Chief at NASA Ames where he was responsible for the majority of NASA's research in air traffic management and the piloted simulators at Ames.

He has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in aircraft and spacecraft dynamics & control at Stanford and San Jose State University.
