That is all true, including that more emphasis should be place on actual stick & rudder skills, but it is also true that great progress has been made in the Level D and above simulators. As an old FAA examiner pointed out to me, they are flight simulators, not landing simulators. And that was on an old Level A Lear sim.
But without having a fleet of tailwheel aircraft, how are they going to train the young aspiring airline pilots in basic stick & rudder skills? They took spins out of the syllabus many years ago.
