The Pilot Training Study: Precommissioning Training.
Cook, J. W.
The cost of training, as conducted by the Air Force Academy, Reserve Officer Training Corps, and Officer Training School, and leading to the commissioning of new Air Force officers is presented. The student flows, personnel resources required to support the flows, and costs of pilot candidates graduating from each of the three commissioning sources were analyzed. These analyses were made to develop estimating relationships and predictive factors that may be used for estimating pilot candidate costs over a range of commissioned officer production. The analysis for each training program involved is comprised of the following: (1) the study of flow factors; (2) the calculation of average attrition rates; (3) the identification of student load capacities; (4) the determination of historical costs of training at past student-load levels; and (5) the estimation of future costs of training at varying production levels, with costs adjusted to FY 1968 dollars and to take into account estimates of future attrition rates.
