Abstract : The Universal Digital Operational Flight Trainer Tool (UDOFTT), programmed to simulate a high-performance, single-engine jet fighter, was used for an initial pilot performance study. Six maneuvers were employed in conjunction with real-time simulation of in-flight piloting tasks in an F-100A cockpit. The results of this study and of earlier investigations of the UDOFTT provided a basis for planning a series of pilot training experiments. The methodology, rationale, and design of these experiments were oriented toward effective use of the UDOFTT to establish the extent to which reductions in the degree of simulation affects piloting performance and the amount of transfer of training.
