Training Research Program and Plans: Advanced Simulation in Undergraduate Pilot Training.
Matheny, W. G.
The study reports the work done by a panel of experts in training research toward defining priority research investigations to be undertaken through the Human Resources Laboratory, Flying Training Division (HRL/FT). A list of recommended investigations judged to be important for increasing the effectiveness of beginning pilot training was formulated based on their suggestions and in conjunction with the capabilities of the HRL/FT facility. Methodological considerations in the planning of long range training research are the difficulties inherent in carrying out classical transfer of training experiments and the configuration of the training simulator. The major elements of an overall plan for a research program in undergraduate pilot training are discussed. These include the six technological base phases and the research phase. The discussion on suggested research is divided into two areas: training methodology and simulator requirements. A list of 23 references is included. Materials used in the different processes of the study are included in a 35-page appendix. (Author/EC)
