/ By Editorial Staff

This Aviation Training Devices (ATD) table compares 40+ simulators’ features and prices. These ATDs are available on the market today for use by flight schools, aviation colleges, flying clubs and private individuals. The price range falls between US $ 6K and 500K. We will add new simulators as they become available or are flagged to us. We are also adding columns with additional data once it becomes available for most simulators listed. The table’s columns offer price, known aviation authority certification, and add the presence of motion, force feedback, type of cabin configuration, instruments and more. The information has been gathered either online or, in most cases, directly from the manufacturer. This information is offered as is, and should help those who are in the market for an approved simulator for their trainees.
