The Pilot Training Study: A Cost-Estimating Model for Undergraduate Pilot Training.
Allison, S. L.
A means for estimating the resource requirements and attendant costs of any configuration of the undergraduate pilot training system (UPT) is described by inputs that are supplied by the user of the model. The inputs consist of data such as UPT graduate requirements, course syllabus requirements, instructor-student ratios, administrative and support manpower relationships, number of aircraft and simulators available, aircraft and simulator utilization rates, amount of facilities available, and cost relationships. The UPT model, which is designed to aid the user in examining long-range alternatives in yearly increments for up to 20 years, calculates the costs associated with these resource requirements in terms of research and development costs, investment costs, and operating costs. Among the alternatives that can be examined are changes in the numbers and types of training aircraft and simulators used; adjustments in prescribed syllabus hours for flight, simulator or classroom training; changes in numbers of graduates required; modifications of aircraft or simulator utilization rates; and changes in airspace, facilities (e.g., runways) or numbers of training bases.
