Global Flight Simulator Market 2017-2021

About Flight Simulator

A flight simulator artificially recreates the environment and other aspects of flying for pilot training purposes on civil and military aircraft and covers simulation in the environment, aircraft, and cueing. It is not only used to acquire flying knowledge and experience but also extensively used to learn how to react to emergency situations. Military flight simulators educate the military personnel about the critical situations that they may be susceptible to during missions. They are used for exposing the military and commercial pilots to real-time situations, such as loss of electronics, hydraulic failures, bad weather, and incidents like tire blowouts on landing. Apart from the emergency training, a trainee can quickly learn to use the military combat systems, without the fear of making a mistake. Almost everything from engine failure to air combat mid-air refueling can be learned with the assistance of highly advanced and innovative simulators.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global flight simulator market to grow at a CAGR of 4.61% during the period 2017-2021.
