Instructional Methodology and Experimental Design for Evaluating Audio-Video Support to Undergraduate Pilot Training.
Purifoy, George R., Jr.
This report presents a detailed description of the methods by which airborne video recording will be utilized in training Air Force pilots, and presents the format for an experiment testing the effectiveness of such training. Portable airborne recording with ground playback permits more economical and efficient teaching of the critical visual and auditory cues which trigger, mediate and result from pilot performance. Audio/video equipment utilization is described for T-37 and T-38 aircraft, and training methodology, which has been formulated to permit use of video recording and teaching techniques in the Air Force Undergraduate Pilot Training Program, is described along with some of its limitations. Four parts are seen to the training sequence: briefing, airborne training, debriefing, and individualized tape review. Plans for an eight-month experimental evaluation of the effects of audio/video techniques are detailed, including schedules, operating practices, student selection procedures, instructor training plans, data gathering procedures, and guidelines for final analysis.
