Abstract : The record/playback feature of modern, advanced digital simulators indicates a potential for the achievement of important methodological advances in observer training and in predetermining measurement reliability. An exploratory study recently completed showed that the record/playback feature of the Advanced Simulator for Pilot Training (ASPT) could be successfully used to facilitate the development and validation of a recording form for an instrument flight training maneuver. In addition, this feature was successfully used to train instructor pilot observers to reliably record maneuver performances using the form. These results have important research implications, since they will allow a degree of control over recording objectivity and reliability not previously possible. Researchers can be freed from after-the-fact correlational reliability estimations. In addition, innovative recording formats can be safely and efficiently developed and refined before validation in flight.
