The use of full flight simulators has been an integral part of flying training for a number of years. Simulators are used for a number of reasons. These include: improved availability compared with aircraft; teaching effectiveness; flight safety (as trainees move onto more complex aircraft); affordability; and environmental impact (such as, reduced noise and emission).

As such, we do not hold this information.
