Rand Symposium on Pilot Training and the Pilot Career; Recollections of the Chairman.
Stewart, W. A.
Topics discussed in this 1970 symposium included the economics of flight training, careers in flying, college versus high school graduates, defining the trained pilot, motivation and selection, innovation in pilot training, training goals, transfer of training, and the role of simulators. Conferees agreed that the present Air Force undergraduate pilot training program not only represents sizeable advances in technique and methodology over the recent past, but is also relatively flexible and responsive to innovation.
