Market Scenario


A flight simulator artificially recreates aircraft flight and various aspects of the flight environment. The flight simulator is used for pilot training on fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. There are two types of training, namely, initial training for new pilots and recurrent training for existing pilots. Meanwhile, the flight simulators are categorized as, FFS (full flight simulators) and FTD (flight training devices). FFS is a replica of a specific type of airplane cockpit, whereas FTD is a replica of the flight controls and other devices. There are four levels of FFS, levels A-D. Level D is the highest standard and provides aircraft acceleration in all six DOF. A flight simulator covers simulation in three areas such as aircraft, environment, and cueing. The market is growing significantly because of the increased use of virtual training methods. As a result of the increases in fuel prices, it has become difficult for airlines to provide airborne training to pilots. Therefore, airlines prefer simulator-based training as it requires less time and costs less compared to training on actual aircraft. The increase in the number of aircraft orders has also contributed to the demand for flight simulators, which enable cost-effective training to be delivered in a safe environment. The utilization of new technologies such as computer graphics, mechanical actuation, and distributed computing are trends in the global civil aerospace simulation market that are improving the features of flight simulators. The increase in computing speed and memory capacity offered by high-performance computing capability is enabling simulators and training devices to produce better-quality images inside the simulated cockpit.


Segmentation of the Global Civil Aerospace Simulation and Training Market


High-fidelity simulation systems closely duplicate the real world and help pilots to prepare for any situation. Earlier, multi-monitor systems were used in the simulator to train pilots. However, the introduction of collimated displays and the cobra-curved display flight simulator has changed the market focus. Thus, there is a significant shift from multi-monitor systems to high-fidelity displays. The use of virtual training methods is growing rapidly as airborne operations are generally 10 times the cost of simulator operations. The cost associated with airborne training is increasing because of rising fuel prices across the world. Hence, airlines are facing difficulties in providing airborne training to pilots and shifting toward simulator-based training because of its greater cost-effectiveness. As the requirements for flight training are changing and more importance is being given to aviation safety, it has become necessary for pilots to have simulator-based training. According to the FAA, to obtain an airline transport pilot certificate, additional training is mandatory. This training includes both academic and flight simulator training. The flight crew has to undergo two days of training and testing in a flight simulator every six months. Thus, there is a shift from traditional training to simulation-based training. The market is segmented by type, platform, and by region. Based on type, the civil aerospace simulation and training market has been divided into a full flight simulator, flight training device, and others, and based on type the civil aerospace simulation and training market has been divided into the fixed-wing simulator and rotary-wing simulator respectively. Furthermore, the market has been segregated based on region as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America is the leading region for the global civil aerospace simulation and training market and is expected to grow substantially during the forecast period. It houses two main countries, namely the US and Canada. The sheer existence of major players such as CAE, UTC, among others, result in the dominance of this region in the global market. Furthermore, players in this region are focusing on implementing advanced technologies such as AR/VR solutions. These initiatives impact market growth.
