A Study of the U.S. Coast Guard Aviator Training Requirements.
Hall, Eugene R.; And Others
An analytical study conducted to define functional characteristics of modern, synthetic flight training equipment for the purpose of producing potentially better qualified aviators through a combination of aircraft and simulator training. Relevant training which aviators receive in preparation for specific aircraft duties and training requirements for Coast Guard aviation are discussed. To meet these objectives, a comprehensive study of aviator requirements during operational missions was undertaken. The search and rescue (SAR) mission was chosen for the analysis, and missions were chosen to represent operations in each of the four aircraft used by the Coast Guard primarily for the SAR.
