This thesis work was developed in collaboration with TXT e-solutions in order to improve a single aisle civil aircraft flight simulator mathematical model. The starting point was an existing model, referred to an Airbus A320, already available inside the company. To achieve this goal the procedure adopted was articulated in the following manner: first it was required an analysis of the existing assets in order to highlight the major lacks and the elements that prevented the model to be used with other aircraft. Then, it was necessary to learn to use some tools to produce the values which, inserted inside the simulator model, were able to reproduce the behaviour of other aircraft. This was done to acquire a benchmark capable to give some information about the improvements effectiveness. In order to facilitate these values production for different aircraft and flight conditions, some automation scripts, which interact with the existing programs, were written. Once all the tools required were gathered and well understood, it was possible to edit some sections of the model: to improve the versatility lots of parameters were brought outside the model and inserted in a configuration file specific for the aircraft; while to expand the capabilities and the fidelity the engine subsystem was improved and a landing gear system was added. Finally some tests, in compliance with the EASA regulation, were performed and their output was analysed to evaluate the impact of the changes made.
