Flight sims: Future of GA

simulatorsA 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.
