Flight simulation is getting more and more high fidelity. With what is called an Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD), a pilot can even build time toward an instrument rating with use of a flight simulator. With an AATD, 20 hours can be used. With a BATD, 10 hours can be used.

Simulators allow for practicing a range of procedures that would otherwise be unsafe. Things like emergency procedures, engine out, impossible turns, and routine things like instrument approaches, departures, arrivals, and so on.

It’s a great way to learn to fly when you can repeat maneuvers and procedures over and over again.
