    Continuous professional development plays a key role in today's organizations. With skilled personnel companies try to maintain a good market position. In the aviation industry maintaining professional skills is a premise for the security values and for succeeding in the profession. The purpose of this study is to identify pilots' views on the formation of workmanship and also what meanings they give to simulation pedagogy. My goal is to find out how pilots explain their workmanships' formation, and also how they explain the importance of simulation training in terms of their profession. I did the implementation of the study with qualitative research methods. I collected data by interviewing five commercial airline pilots between the ages of 25-42. I believed that theme interview left enough space for the interviewee's own interpretation as well as give an opportunity to express their own opinions and experiences. Analysis of the data was content analysis. The pilots' perceptions of workmanship formation are explained through new experiences and routine. Expertise, in turn, is defined as a kind of special qualities and problem solving. Pilots see the workmanship as well as expertise through the formation of experiences ja training. The analysis highlighted the view of simulation training as an important element towards expertise. Simulation Training as a whole was seen as sustaining the skills as well as growing the professional skills. Criticism towards simulation pedagogy came up when pilots were talking about debriefing situations. Feedback and is not always seen as valid to meet the educational performance.
