Determining Training Device Requirements in Fixed Wing Aviator Training.
Caro, Paul W.; And Others
A systematic study of all fixed wing pilot training programs at the U.S. Army Aviation School was conducted in fiscal year 1968. The objective was to determine whether training might be made more effective through greater use of synthetic flight training equipment and, if so, to specify the main characteristics of appropriate equipment. Secondary objectives were to assist in developing low cost devices for one course and to determine the probably cost-effectiveness of a commercially available device in another. A method was developed which identified specific and differential needs for synthetic equipment in each course and determined suitability of existing equipment to meet those needs. A generalizable, systematic method for determining requirements for synthetic training equipment in existing training programs resulted. (Author)
