Inspired by the idea of reducing the expense of flying lessons, Edwin A. Link developed his first “pilot trainer” from parts obtained in his father’s organ factory and received a patent on his device in 1931. During World War II, nearly all U.S. combat pilots first learned to fly utilizing this type of trainer. By the end of the war, over 35 nations utilized the Link Trainer.
