Cockpit of Boeing B-767-300 Simulator
Simulators should not be the "horror chambers" that may cause nightmares in many pilots. Instead they should be like a "laboratory" with a motion, where Pilots can practice what we cannot in the real aircraft.

The FAA has urged aircraft operators to incorporate its airplane upset recovery aid into their flight crew training programmes.The guidelines and actions for upset recovery training were developed by the FAA in cooperation with Airbus, Boeing and the Flight Safety Foundation in 1998. The work group was primarily focused on large aircraft, but many of the same aerodynamic principles apply to smaller swept-wing turbine aircraft. The FAA highlighted that, although the overall accident rate has decreased, the category of loss of control (LOC) continues to outpace other factors as the leading cause of fatal accidents in the last 20 years.
