Executive Summary
Aircraft simulators imitate the experience of flying a real aircraft. Over the years, aircraft simulators have continued to be recognized as vital element for flight training for individual general aviation pilots, jet fighter military pilots and airline flight crew. Flight simulation has brought about radical changes in flight training methods, reducing the training risk and improving training quality. It has also led to significant improvements in flight safety, alleviating airborne congestion and the impact of aviation on the environment, while reducing the cost of training. It has evolved over the years to become an integral component of civil operations and military capability. With increasing complexity of both civil and military aircraft due to advances in avionics, expanding flight-crew training requirements which in turn have increased reliance on flight simulators.

Flight simulators are mainly of five types- System trainers, Flight Training Devices (FTD), Cockpit Procedure Trainers (CPT), full flight simulators (FFS) and Part Task Trainers (PTT). However, it can be broadly categorized into two types- full flight simulators (FFS) and flight simulation training devices (FSTD).

Some of the factors such as growing active fleet of commercial and business aircraft, regulation and new licensing techniques, rising demand for trained aviation professionals etc. support growth of the industry globally. Major market constraints are stringent training and certificate regulations, lack of simulator for complex systems and presence of several private players in the market. Outsourcing training and maintenance services and technological advancements are some of the trends that would compel the growth of the market in coming years.
