What experience do you have with flight simulators?
Given the experience of my heavy training with flight simulators, I have come to realize that nothing prepares you for the craft of flying better than flight simulators. For me, these proved to be invaluable in honing my skills as a pilot. Having spent countless hours with flight sims, I’ve practiced takeoffs and landing in varied weather conditions that gave me the opportunity to deploy appropriate emergency measures.
Since flight sims can also replicate different airplanes, I familiarized myself with how various aircrafts work and how they are handled. In addition, it helped me improve my decision making skills in terms of practicing final split-second decisions in response to changing scenarios. In conclusion, I would say that flight simulators have been instrumental in making me navigate through complex airspaces, enriching my ability to effectively communicate with Air Traffic Control and thereby manage air traffic.
