Modern flight simulators have greatly simplified the process of training flight crews. At the same time, the safety of students has significantly increased, costs at the initial stage of training have decreased, and efficiency has been increased in teaching the basic skills necessary for transitioning to real flights. Engineers in the U.S. Armed Forces decided to increase the efficiency of pilot training and proposed the use of virtual reality in flight schools. The increase in the speed of training for pilots is caused by a shortage of flight personnel. At the first stage of training in virtual reality, future pilots will study the design of helicopters. After passing the control tests, students will learn the art of helicopter control. Training using virtual reality will let out 1,300 pilots per year. Test training was conducted in 2018, when 13 out of 20 students were able to complete the full course of training in just 4 months. The accelerated training program will not affect pilots of the US Air Force and Navy, who will undergo training on simulators and real aircraft. For army pilots, a reduction in the training program is allowed. It takes only one year to prepare a pilot for controlling a helicopter. It should be noted that experiments also do not affect civil aviation, where flight safety comes first and pilot training time should not be reduced.
