Air Traffic Control (ATC) Simulation & Training Market Trends



  • Increasing need for pilots in the aircraft sector drives the market growth


The market CAGR for air traffic control (ATC) simulation and training is being driven by the aviation sector has recently been shaken by a surge in demand for new pilots, as the airline industry continues to face a global shortage of certified pilots.


Owing to a pilot shortage, many airline carriers have been forced to limit the number of flight schedules as the size of the aircraft fleet continues to grow globally, in tandem with the rising yearly growth rate of global air traffic passenger demand. Owing to a pilot shortage, the number of passengers on board was limited, resulting in an increase in the frequency of flight cancellations.


One of the reasons for the current pilot scarcity is the hard and expensive application process for becoming an airline pilot; in particular, pilots are personally responsible for getting their own FAA qualifications.


For example, one of the reasons for the current lack of airline pilots is the highly demanding application process for becoming an airline pilot, particularly in the United States. Aspiring pilots are solely responsible for obtaining their own FAA certification. Over $100,000 in flight training and education costs may be incurred, preventing others from pursuing a career in the aviation business. Horizon Air, Alaska Airlines' Seattle-based affiliate, was forced to cut its busy summer schedule in August 2018, cancelling more than 300 flights. Thus, driving the air traffic control (ATC) simulation & training market revenue.
