Simhawk handled requests for more than 16,000 hours of simulator time via its online marketplace last year, the company announced on Monday. “We saw a significant increase in the number of users in the second half of 2017, including those from a number of industry segments that we had not previously served,” said Simhawk CEO Chris Weinberg.
According to Weinberg, Simhawk handled training requests that equate to the annual capacity of three full-motion flight simulators. “And we expect this to increase significantly in 2018,” he added.
Simhawk’s marketplace is free for training customers to use, and its Sim Search tool enables customers to search all of the civilian simulators in the world and determine pricing and availability without having to contact each supplier. The company plans to add several new features and functionality to its platform this year to further streamline the simulator search process and notify buyers of special opportunities and last-minute availability.
