UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Segment Analysis - By Type 

Full flight Simulator is set to register highest CAGR of 6.1% during forecast period 2021-2026. These system are getting more popularity due to high fidelity, reliability, simulation accuracy and better at exposing deficiencies like proneness to pilot-induced oscillation (PIO). These systems create sound, motion, and visuals to create realistic training environment and also offer digital electrical control loading and an electric motion system, reducing power consumption and ensuring minimal operational life costs. Several companies are creating opportunity for full flight simulator (FFS) with the increased usage of this simulators. For instance, in June 2019, Airbus introduced the new full flight simulator (FFS) in order to assist the staff training on the Airbus A330 Multirole Tanker Transport (MRTT). Similarly, CAE provides the most innovative full-flight simulators (FFS), including the latest CAE 7000XR Series Level D FFS, improving training efficiency, offering advanced capabilities, and increasing operational efficiency.

UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Flight simulator for Commercial application is likely to register a CAGR of 6.5% during forecast period 2021-2026. Rise in the global air passenger traffic is driving the growth of the aviation industry, which is leading to the demand for commercial aircraft deliveries. For Instance, Bell’s Textron Inc. delivered 192 commercial aircrafts in 2019 as compared to 132 in 2018. Similarly, Honeywell Inc is forecast to deliver 4000 to 4200 civilian aircrafts between 2018-2022 despite the Coronavirus led slowdown. Rising demand in commercial aircrafts will create opportunity for Flight Simulators. The rise in demand for aircraft is similarly driving demand for UAVs especially in commercial markets where the use cases of UAVs continue to grow..

UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

In 2020, North America dominated the Flight Simulator industry market size for about 38.7% market share, followed by APAC and Europe. In North America, strict guidelines imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) regarding use of simulators for training purpose. According to new FAR regulations, Air carriers must compulsory develop training programs using simulators that meet the upgraded requirements. Stringent regulations as such will drive the usage of UAV Flight Simulator market in this region. Similarly high demand for air travel in North America is also one of the major reason for flight simulator market as it increases the need for pilot training. For instance according to the report given by International Air Transport Association (IATA), in 2019, global passenger traffic in North America increased by 6.5% over 2018.  

UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Drivers

Rising demand for commercial pilots

As Flight simulators are used to train the pilots by creating the virtual environment, increasing demand for new pilots will in turn rise the flight simulator market share globally. For instance, demand for new pilots is expected to rise dramatically over the next two decades as a result of new aircraft entering the global fleet. According Boeing, 790,000 new pilots is likely to be required by 2037 to meet growing passenger fleet. Similarly, in 2018, Airbus estimated a worldwide demand of pilots to reach 450,000 by 2035. UAVs similarly are also showcasing continued growth driven by rising demand from end use markets. The need for flight training for these aircraft is particularly going to drive the market.

Increase in adoption of Virtual Training to ensure safety

The Increase in adoption of technology of virtual training and simulation in civil and commercial aviation to ensure aviation safety in flight handling and including situation such as awareness, skill competency will promote the flight simulation market. Similarly, research and development efforts directed towards virtual reality and artificial intelligence advancements has resulted in highly naturalistic flight simulators, thus offering navigation and motion control mechanism will enhance the market positively.

UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Challenges 

High cost involved in the making of flight simulator and complexities in acquiring License

One of the prominent challenges is the high cost of producing and acquiring FFS FTD systems and cockpit procedures trainer. For instance FAA Qualified Level  6& 7 FTD aka fixed base simulators, cost around $2 million and FNPT II, Flight and Navigation Procedures Trainer, costs about $2.5 million. Similarly complexities  in acquiring the license is also one of the challenging factor in flight simulator market. Majority of training providers would not be able to acquire and operate the type of simulators required for a major portion of multi-crew pilot license (MPL) training due to their cost and slow pace regulatory licensing process.

UAV Flight Training and Simulator Market Landscape

Partnership and acquisitions are key strategies adopted by players in the Flight Simulator market. In 2018, flight Simulator market industry outlook was consolidated with the top five players accounting for more than 52.45% of the share. Flight Simulator top 10 companies include Airbus Group N.V., Avion Group, CAE, Inc., Collins Aerospace, Elite Simulation Solutions, Flightsafety International, Frasca International, Inc., Indra Sistemas Sa, L-3 Communications Holdings Inc., Precision Flight Controls Inc., and others

Acquisitions/Technology Launches

  • In April 2019- CAE partnered with JetBlue Airways (US) to provide 2 CAE 500XR flight training devices and 2 Airbus A220- 300 CAE 7000XR Series full flight simulators. With this partnership, CAE strengthened its customer base in the UAV flight simulator market.
  • In April 2019- L -3 Commercial Aviation, a subsidiary of L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. entered into a 2-year agreement with Aer Lingus (UK) to provide the full flight simulator pilot training program including UAV training. This agreement provides 2 years of continuous pilot training support to Aer Lingus.
