The combination of simulation and improved training techniques ensures a safe and economical flying training program. In a 5-year period, American Airlines has reduced airplane training and flight check hours by more than 75%. There are strong indications that, for qualified airline crewmen, a goal of total simulation for all training and flight checks will become a reality.
