Fixed base and Desktop simulators have existed for years. Whether every airline consistently invests in them is another question, but they already exist and are certified and used extensively in the industry.
Thanks for the information and the key words. Seemingly this sort of thing would be a better training tool than an iPad (not a knock at iPad) The important thing as I would imagine, is exercises building muscle memory for any number of specific things.
