Training in otolaryngology is very exciting because of the opportunity to learn a wide range of complex technical skills. Traditionally these skills were obtained through an apprenticeship model of training and supplemented by the easy availability of cadaveric material such as temporal bones. The current difficulty in obtaining these and the advent of an increasing range of non-organic simulation models gives us the opportunity to accelerate skills acquisition before stepping foot in the operating theatre. The airline industry has also taught us the benefits of using simulation in training and the enormous strides in airline safety over the last 50 years needs to be matched in the healthcare industry.
