Vote: Do Flight Training Devices Help Student Pilots Learn To Fly More Quickly?

Matthew Piatt

Flight training devices (FTD) have been used for instrument training for years, but they're not as commonly used for student pilots working toward their private pilot certificate.

By using an FTD, instrument students are able to gain proficiency quickly, and spend less time (and money) in the airplane. But can the same apply to student pilots who are learning to fly? By spending money in the FTD, can students save money overall?

Tell us what you think - can FTDs help student pilots save money and learn to fly more quickly?
