As the world fights COVID-19 outbreak through social distancing, isolation, and lockdowns, airline companies and airports are compelled to temporarily suspend their operations to a great extent. Cancellation of flights due to government restrictions create a heap of financial burden in terms of reimbursements.

Key Takeaways of Flight Simulator Market

  • Full flight simulator (FFS) accounts for more than 90% of flight simulator sales.
  • Civil applications account for over 69% of total adoption.
  • Military & defense industry will emerge as a highly lucrative area of investment for market stakeholders, with a projected 5% CAGR through 2030.
  • Adoption of fixed flight training devices is projected for an impressive surge in the near future.
  • North America maintains hegemony, with nearly half of the total market value.
  • Flight simulator market in South Asia is poised for a healthy 6.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

Flight simulators are witnessing a new wave of technology ushered by AR and VR. The shift of focus on skill competency, safety of operations, and situational awareness in pilot training programs will further augment the adoption rate of flight simulators.

Flight simulators are amongst the most vulnerable verticals hit by COVID-19 pandemic. As airline companies struggle to make ends meet, many have suspended all operations. Governments are deploying air fleets to rescue citizens stranded in foreign countries. This further strains cash reserves of airline companies. Since flights are being flown on a pro-bono basis. Government rescue funds offer some sigh of relief, but a full-fledged recovery is only possible post the pandemic. This detrimental impact on the airline industry is likely to cause a significant fall in the demand for flights simulators. As the industry faces an excess of idle workforce they will not invest in training new pilots during the pandemic.
