Flight Simulation And Learning Effectiveness

Full flight simulators for fixed-wing aircraft provide training experiences in three axes of flight. Proponents claim this allows greater fidelity of actual flight conditions and enhances learning. In documented programs such as Line Oriented Flight Training, progressive sequences in the training increase complexity and numbers of events occurring simultaneously. In your view, does the added fidelity and complexity reinforce existing skills, or is it more likely to generate loss of confidence, when failing to execute correctly? Explain your rationale and provide at least one scholarly source to support your position. Post your observation (using APA format where applicable).
