AN ASSESSMENT OF RESEARCH RELEVANT TO PILOT TRAINING.
SMODE, ALFRED F.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT PRESENTS A CRITICAL REVIEW AND INTERPRETATION OF THE CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF RESEARCH DATA THAT HAVE EITHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT IMPLICATIONS FOR THE TRAINING OF PILOTS. THE PURPOSE IS TO ORGANIZE SYSTEMATICALLY THE RESEARCH FINDINGS FROM THE HUMAN PERFORMANCE AND THE TRAINING RESEARCH LITERATURE THAT ARE PERTINENT TO PILOT TRAINING AND, BASED ON THE STATUS OF RESEARCH IN DEFINED AREAS, TO IDENTIFY RESEARCHABLE ISSUES. SUCCESSIVE PORTIONS OF THE REPORT DEAL WITH STUDIES ON THE DEFINITION OF THE PILOT'S JOB, THE ACQUISITION OF FLYING SKILLS, PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT, SIMULATION AND TRANSFER OF TRAINING, OPERATIONAL COMPONENTS OF THE PILOT'S JOB AND THE MAINTENANCE OF FLYING PROFICIENCY. ATTENTION IS ALSO GIVEN TO STUDIES CONCERNED WITH IMPROVING TRAINING SYSTEMS, AND RECENT INNOVATIONS IN TRAINING METHODS ARE REVIEWED. AS IT PROVIDES MUCH INFORMATION DIRECTLY CONCERNED WITH PILOT TRAINING, THIS REPORT WILL INTEREST THOSE INVOVLED IN ANY ASPECT OF FLIGHT TRAINING. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES TWO TABLES, 11 FIGURES, AND 336 REFERENCES. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE AEROSPACE MEDICAL RESEARCH LABORATORIES, WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, OHIO. 255 PAGES. (AUTHOR/LY)
