This document contains two papers on aviation education. "Chief Pilots of Regional Airlines Perceive Basic Instrument Skills as Most Important with Respect to Need for Additional Training of Entry-Level Pilots" (William C. Herrick) reports the results of a study in which 126 (of a population of 197) randomly selected regional airlines' chief pilots who were surveyed regarding the additional training needed by entry-level pilots generally agreed that what new pilots need most is more basic instrument training (flight or simulator). The second paper, "Effectiveness of Computer-Based Flight Simulation" (David A. Lombardo), presents a study in which the transfer effectiveness ratio from a computer-based flight simulation to a generic flight training device was measured by comparing the performance of an experimental group of 29 subjects who used a computer-based flight simulator before using the flight training device to the performance of a control group of 33 individuals who used the flight training device without first having used the computer flight simulator.
