Simulator industry gets in training for aircraft ramp-up

Given the unprecedented wave of airliner orders of recent years, strong demand for simulators is unsurprising.

CAE, which claims the top slot in civil simulation equipment sales, ended its financial year on 31 March having sold 41 full-flight simulators (FFS), the second-highest total ever, after 2013-2014’s record of 48 (the latest year’s number did not include a further 11 deployed to CAE’s own training centres.)
