Pilot Training Study.
Mooz, William E.
The purpose of the Pilot Training Study is to produce tools with which to analyze the pilot training process of the Air Force in terms of the resources required to train pilots and the cost of pilot training. These tools allow examination of the training courses themselves, and also of the policy factors which drive the need for pilots. The tools developed consist largely of mathematical simulation models which can be exercised on a computer. Two general types of models are involved. The first type is primarily a decision model, and the second type is a parametric resource and cost model. Five figures present the pilot flow, the overall structure of the pilot study, the typical resource and cost categories, and the typical detail of resource and cost model. Graphical representations give requirements for pilots in cockpits, training requirements through undergraduate and advanced pilot training, comparison training requirements at 8% and 12% pilot loss rates, and advanced pilot training-bomber sensitivity analysis.
