The flight simulator market comprises hardware, software, and services related to training and upgradation. Flight simulators offer a simulated environment that recreates the environment of an aircraft in operation. They eliminate the risk to life or property when pilots are being trained. The flight simulator market size is projected to grow from USD 7.4 billion in 2022 to USD 10.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.9 % from 2022 to 2027.

Contracts, partnerships, new product & service launches, mergers and acquisitions are among the key strategies the leading market players adopt to strengthen and sustain their position in the flight simulator market. In July 2022, Aircalin (New Caledonia) secured a contract with Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) to provide flight crew training for its A320 and A330 pilots.
