Key Findings

•Globally, the commercial flight training and simulation market is essentially flat.
•Market growth is effectively limited to Asia-Pacific and Middle Eastern airlines.
•Economic problems have significantly effected the airlines and that effect is likely to become only modestly better.
•Initial pilot training has declined significantly in North America and Europe because potential students in those regions are not interested in careers as pilots. While there is interest in other parts of the world, costs of training have limited demand.
•Overall, recurrent pilot training for airlines and business aircraft remains stable. While North American and European demand is declining, Asia-Pacific demand is rising.
•The supply side of the market for type rating and recurring training continues to consolidate in the hands of just a few companies.
•North American and European companies provide the bulk of advanced pilot training and virtually all simulators.

CEO’s Perspective

Fuel costs will continue to depress the initial training market.
The airlines’ minimal profitability will limit growth throughout the market.
North American and European companies will continue to provide recurring training globally.
New simulators are a significant market but often for in-house use.
Recurring training will stay flat globally.

•This study covers the market for pilot training in commercial and general aviation, including ground instruction, flight instruction, simulator operations and instruction, simulator purchases, and flight training device purchases.
•This study is global in nature and evaluates regions expressed as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of World (ROW).
•Units identified in this study include number of pilots trained and number of simulators or flight training devices (FTDs) installed.
•Prices reflect US dollars.
•Definition of Revenue
oTraining revenue includes flight costs, simulator use costs, and instructor hourly costs.
oTraining devices revenue includes purchases of simulator and FTD units, services for those units, and modifications to them.
•While training categories can be expressed in many ways, in this document, they are addressed as student training, private pilot training, ratings, commercial pilot training, certified flight instructor training, air transport training, type rating, recurrent flight training and recurrent simulator training. They are categorized are follows:
oInitial training includes student training, private pilot training, ratings, and commercial pilot training
oAdvanced training includes certified flight instructor (CFI) training, air transport pilot (ATP) training, and type ratings
oRecurrent training includes all ground, flight and simulator recurring training
•Each of these training areas has been evaluated for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
•Simulator and FTD purchases have been categorized by region, operator, and manufacturer. Simulator revenue and training revenue are reflected by demand region.

Key Questions This Study Will Answer

Is the training market growing? Where will it continue to grow and at what rate?
Are the existing simulator competitors structured correctly to meet the competition?
Is this market likely to continue consolidation and is it ripe for acquisition?
How will the structure of the market change with time?
Are the recurring training services offered today meeting customer needs or is there additional development needed?
Are the suppliers in the space best positioned to offer services separately or do they need partnerships to take their business to the next level?
