A key to the future of flying may be on the ground.
With flight simulators, students can practice maneuvers without the high cost of avgas and even log time: An instrument-rating applicant may log up to 20 hours of training without leaving the ground.
Hear AOPA, flight simulator developers, and operators talk about what ground-based aviation training devices can do for students—and experienced pilots—at AOPA Aviation Summit in Tampa, Fla., Nov. 5 through 7.
Flight simulators can reduce the cost of training, and they allow students to train for emergencies from the safety and comfort of an air-conditioned room. AOPA Flight Training Deputy Editor Ian Twombly will host a talk about flight simulators and the future of flying at Summit. Learn about the quest to build a better, cheaper simulator and find out more about how the equipment can help you with glass cockpit flying.
