AFHRL/FT [Air Force Human Resources Laboratory/Flight Training] Capabilities in Undergraduate Pilot Training Simulation Research: Executive Summary.
Matheny, W. G.; And Others
The document presents a summary description of the Air Force Human Resource Laboratory's Flying Training Division (AFHRL/FT) research capabilities for undergraduate pilot training. One of the research devices investigated is the Advanced Simulator for Undergraduate Pilot Training (ASUPT). The equipment includes the ASUPT, the instrumented T-37 aircraft, the T-4G and T-40 trainers, and the formation flight trainer. Methodological considerations and the development of a research program are discussed. Instructional procedures and practices are described for three phases which will be used in establishing a technological base: equipment familiarization and operator performance measures for the T-40 study, ASUPT, and instrumented aircraft. One area of suggested research is visual display which will include investigation of visual cues, the use of a visual model as a research tool, and four studies on the content of visual display. Another area for suggested study is motion cue research which will attempt to determine the necessary axes of cockpit motion for training simulation. A third area of suggested research focuses on training methods in the areas of cognitive pretraining, feedback, sequencing of training tasks, contextual training, and individualized training. A list of reference is included. A list of AFHRL/FT research programs for 1975 is appended. (EC)
