The Pilot Training Study: A User's Guide to the Pilot Computer Model. Volume II.
A detailed description is given, with flowcharts and listing, of the computer program for a pilot flow simulation. Given the number of trained pilots required over a time period, and a statement of the policy concerning the flow of pilots between desk and flying assignments, the computer program determines at what times and in what numbers pilots must enter and leave training courses. Requirements for a maximum of 20 years, 80 weapon systems, and three pilot types can be processed. PILOT can estimate the effects of alternative policies on pilot flows and the effect of these flows on training rates. Combined with cost and resource models of the training activities, it may be used to estimate the overall impact on costs of pilot training alternatives. (Author)
