The Pilot Training Study: A Cost-Estimating Model for Advanced Pilot Training (APT).
Knollmeyer, L. E.
The Advanced Pilot Training Cost Model is a statement of relationships that may be used, given the necessary inputs, for estimating the resources required and the costs to train pilots in the Air Force formal flying training schools. Resources and costs are computed by weapon system on an annual basis for use in long-range planning or sensitivity analyses. The model may be used for any number of weapon systems for any number of years. Total operating cost, incremental investment cost, and operating cost per graduate are computed. Resource requirements include personnel, aircraft, and simulators. This document describes the structure of the cost estimating model and the problems encountered in its development. All of the relationships embodied in the model are explained and examples of its use for sensitivity studies are given. For related documents see AC 010 340-344 and AC 010 346-347. (Author/CK)
