A Data Management System is being developed that will consist of a newly defined data bank and file organization of student pilot selection, performance, and administrative data. Computerized techniques for processing these data have been developed to support a series of 14 system modules. The module outputs have been tailored to support a variety of decisions which are required to handle student pilots throughout the training program. Emphasis during this phase of the program has been on the study of the primary and basic phases of student training. Techniques developed for these phases are expected to be applicable to other phases and to the Naval Flight Officer (NFO) training program. When implemented by the Chief of Naval Air Training, the Data Management System is expected to provide improved procedures for the handling of student pilot training. These improved procedures can be expected to result in reduced attrition in the flight syllabus, more effective placement of students in the pipelines, in possible changes in the flight syllabus content, in flight hours, and in syllabus duration for certain students.
