A Study to Determine the Feasibility of Establishing a National Program for Training Skilled Aviation Personnel.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe. Div. of Industrial Design and Technology.
To determine the feasibility of establishing a training program for skilled flight and nonflight personnel which are critical to the aviation industry, data were collected from carriers, manufacturers, associations, and agencies. Employment needs were ascertained and a 1980 projection of supply and demand for professional pilots was formulated. A mathematical model for computer prediction was also developed. Existing pilot and mechanic curriculums were analyzed and an improved curriculum was devised. Two sites in the Phoenix area were proposed, and their usefulness for a national training program was examined with respect to location, land, runways, buildings, and utilities. Related to this examination was an analysis of the employment impact on a nearby Indian reservation. Cost estimates were developed on the basis of 500, 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 student enrollment modules and a general financing plan was developed. Short and long range program plans were developed which included land leases and site development, an industry-sponsored non-profit educational organiztion, and designs for proposed facilities. (EM)
