Reportlinker.com released Visiongain report on civil aviation flight training and simulation industry for years 2012-2022
In the beginning of this month, Reportlinker has released Visiongain report on flight training and simulation market for the next decade. While full report must be purchased, some general data is presented to all who are interested. According to the report, because of the importance of aircraft safety, simulation industry became one the main influencers of aviation training. Determined value of overall flight training and simulation market is expected to reach $3.2bn by the end of 2012. Due to this competitive situation in the market, it is expected to grow, since companies will look for ways to differentiate themselves and “stand out from the crowd”. Especially it is noticeable in North America and Western Europe, where major simulation market players are located. Talking about other regions, especially Middle East and Asia Pacific, since economic growth is highly intensive there, dominating companies will be looking for the ways of expanding their influence.
Airbus inaugurates its A350 XWB assembly line in Toulouse
According to Airbus CEO, Fabrice Bregier, A350 XWB is currently world’s newest, most advanced airliner. New Airbus 74,000 sq m aircraft is at final stages of assembly. This static model will be used for ground testing already in spring of 2013. Relating to these news, we can also estimate that production of Full Flight Simulators for this model will be introduced in the near future. Especially it is vital for biggest airlines and training centers, which will require starting training for new aircraft type as it released. Surely, they will start looking for FFS manufacturers, capable of providing them with new A350 XWB simulators really soon. Considering that new aircraft will be introduced only in 2018, we can only imagine how FFS itself will differ from simulators nowadays in terms of technology used, especially visual systems. Can’t wait to see it!
