Performance Measurement in Helicopter Training and Operations.
Prophet, Wallace W.
For almost 15 years, HumRRO Division No. 6 has conducted an active research program on techniques for measuring the flight performance of helicopter trainees and pilots. This program addressed both the elemental aspects of flying (i.e., maneuvers) and the mission- or goal-oriented aspects. A variety of approaches has been investigated, with the stress on nonautomated techniques feasible for operational use. This paper describes the work and illustrates its application to implications for training management, quality control, manpower resources management, and operational capability. Automated human performance monitoring in flight simulators and its implications for automated training is also described. (Author)
