Abstract:

This evaluation was conducted to determine the ability of flight simulator specialists graduating from Air Training Command Course Nr ABR34230 to perform the duties of their specialty. The performance of two groups of apprentices working under operational conditions was evaluated for a 90-day period. After three to seven weeks on the job, the apprentices were capable of performing the duties required in the majority of their assignments. The apprentices were well trained in the adjustment of certain simulator systems and equipment and in the use and care of test equipment. The apprentices were familiar with publications and the use of hand tools but unfamiliar with the operation of control systems and adjustment of components, which represent the primary duties of an operator. The supervisors and apprentices alike felt that the resident course should be altered to include additional training in electronic fundamentals and instruction in the Greek alphabet and current aircraft simulators, by manufacturers type if practical.
