Results of Computer Based Training.
This report compares the projected savings of using computer based training to conduct training for newly hired pilots to the results of that application. New Hire training, one of a number of programs conducted continuously at the United Airline Flight Operations Training Center, is designed to assure that any newly hired pilot will be able to enter and meet the objectives of any of the regular Transition Training Programs (to qualify pilots when they move from one type of aircraft to another) without modifying the existing program. In view of the wide range of student experience in each class, it was decided that the principles of criterion referenced instruction should be used, and the PLATO Computer Based Training System was selected for the application. The findings of this study indicate that the application of criterion referenced, individualized instruction as administered with the help of a computer based training system having good computer managed instruction capabilities has realized substantial savings over the traditional method of instruction; figures for the newly implemented Pilot Skills Training and Assessment portion of the course--using an average of five hours in a flight simulator over a 3-day period for each student--were not included.
