Undergraduate Pilot Training Task Frequency Study. Final Report for Period October 1972-October 1974.
Brown, James E.; Rust, Steven K.
The objectives of the study were: (1) to determine the number of training task repetitions required for an Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) student to become proficient, and (2) to determine the total number of task repetitions that UPT students receive for each maneuver in T-37 and T-38 training. The project was conducted in two parts. Study 1 involved the development of data collection procedures which could be used in an operational UPT program and the initial application of these procedures. Problem areas identified in this effort resulted in procedural revisions which were implemented in study 2. The data collected on recording cards from UPT students (46 in study 1 and 75 in study 2) were analyzed to provide the following descriptive statistics for each task in a specified training phase: mean, standard deviations, medians, modes, and ranges. The results for both studies are presented in summary tables in Appendix A and Appendix C (marginally reproducible in microfiche). Conclusions and recommendations relate to the usefulness of the data to the Air Training Command for UPT syllabus development. Other appended material includes a list of T-37 and T-38 maneuvers and sample data collection cards. (Author/MS)
