Submission + - Royal Canadian Air Force sees more sims in the future of Fighter Pilot Training (thechronicleherald.ca)

dakohli writes: Currently, Canadian Fighter Pilots spend about 20% of their "stick" time in Simulators. RCAF General Blondin states that this will rise to 50/50 in the future. The article goes on to state that the US Army is moving in this direction, although the US Air Force is a little more skeptical. Aircraft are expensive to fly, and if the fidelity of a simulator is good enough then perhaps real pilots will spend even less time actually in the air. Slashdotters, do you think that this will actually make recruiting pilots more difficult, or is it a sign of the things to come beyond Military Aviation?
