Industry Outlook

Flight Simulator is a system that artificially (using software & hardware) re-creates aircraft controls & the environment that it flies, this is done for training the pilots, for designing or various other purposes. The developed replica includes equations that govern the aircraft like; the effects of other aircraft systems, how they react to applications of flight controls, how aircraft fly, and how the aircraft reacts to external factors such as wind shear, turbulence, air density, precipitation, cloud, etc. The use of Flight Simulator is growing due to factors like; ensuring effective operation of the aircraft, reducing the cost incurred by operations, advanced systems that offer real world experience, safety of aircraft, increasing need for basic training to the pilots, etc. Therefore, the Flight Simulator Market is anticipated to expand and has tremendous scope during the forecast period. The global Flight Simulator Market anticipated to flourish in the future by growing at a significantly higher CAGR.
