Operational Tasks Oriented Flying Training Program for Pilot Training; The Systems Approach.
Semple, Clarence A.; Majesty, Melvin S.
In this study, a systems methodology was devised for determing knowledge and skills common to piloting tasks required by differing aircraft missions to form a data base for developing a task oriented flight training program. The general approach was to identify and classify specific tasks performed by Air Force pilots, with the required level of proficiency for each, in current and projected assignments in operational units present and projected aircraft. The study was planned to encompass cross-system analysis and the integration of pilot task data in the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory's computer-based data bank. Therefore, inquiries across and within aircraft systems as to tasks, training requirements, and standards would be possible. Criteria for establishing common mission segments, tasks, and cockpit subsystem hardware were presented, together with task analysis techniques, rules for describing activities and developing the data bank, and assumptions regarding the type of training program to which the data could apply.
