Abstract:

The objective of this study was to develop a more reliable system of evaluating helicopter pilots flight performance by putting emphasis on standardized and objective measures, which would also provide a diagnostic record of student performance. This report is considered to be of primary interest to those organizations and agencies concerned with helicopter pilot training. The Pilot Performance Description Records PPDR have proved useful in administering check rides in primary helicopter training. The system provides a means of diagnosing specific sources of a students end-of-phase deficiencies, by the detailed recording of his flight performance. The report serves to standardize pilot proficiency evaluation through reducing subjective differences in scoring procedures.
