A helicopter simulator is an electronic virtualization system used for creating artificial flight conditions and running training programs for pilots and flight crew. It involves recreating flight movements, sounds, images, controls and the effect of external and environmental factors, such as air density, wind shear, cloud, precipitation and turbulence. The Simulator panel includes various pilot-training devices and systems with duplicate cockpit instruments for modeling mission-critical training programs and providing real-life experience to the pilots. It assists in familiarizing the students with the aircraft-related operations and modifications. As a result, it finds extensive applications in commercial and military aviation.

Helicopter Simulator Market Trends:
The increasing incidence of cross-border and geopolitical tensions across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook on the market. Military and defense industries use these simulators for recreating mission tests, air assaults, escort and attack operations for the armed forces. Helicopter simulators also used for training pilots for services, such as logistics, transportation of troops, goods and ammunitions and conducting rescue operations. Moreover, the increasing awareness among the government and private organizations regarding pilot and passenger safety is providing a thrust to the market growth. Various technological advancements, such as the integration of Simulator devices with virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, are also favoring the market growth. This has further led to the widespread utilization of advanced simulators for running operational trials for drone helicopters and investigating air accidents. Other factors, including significant growth in the aviation industry, along with the implementation of favorable government policies, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
