The global helicopter simulator market is expected to register a CAGR close to 4% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. Hands-on helicopter training has become very expensive, resulting in growing popularity for the helicopter simulator market. Additionally, a simulator allows aspiring pilots to train in the most severe conditions, something a regular trainer cannot provide. Also, there is an increasing demand for pilots and helicopters, especially from the civilian segment of the market that is required to do general service jobs, like commercial flying and emergency medical services. The regulatory authorities of major countries have made use of simulators mandatory for certain hours. This has provided a major boost to the market, especially in Asia-Pacific, where simulator use was minimal in the past. In the last two years, ELITE Simulation Solutions debuted the TH22SM, their single-seat piston helicopter trainer with motion actuation. Airbus Helicopters Japan launched their first FFS for their helicopter training and simulation school in Japan (the company occupies 54% of Japanese helicopter market share). Iran’s defence also inducted a 209 tactical helicopter simulator in 2016.

North America is the largest market; however, Asia-Pacific is expected to see the fastest-growth rate during the forecast period. Slow growth in sales of helicopters in the North American region would affect the growth of helicopter simulator market, which is expected to remain moderate. The economic slowdown in Brazil, one of the largest helicopter markets in the world, is projected to affect the helicopter market. India, China, and Indonesia would be the growth drivers of the simulator market in Asia Pacific.

Key Developments in the Market:
  • March 2018: GSA and Thales launched the EDG²E project to further optimize aviation navigation with Galileo
  • December 2017: L3 Link Awarded Contract to Upgrade F/A-18 Training Systems for the Swiss Air Force
  • February 2017: Rockwell Collins developed new ARC-210 smart mount for Iridium® SATCOM integration
