Abstract:

The study evaluated the effectiveness of the Naval Basic Instrument Trainer NavBIT as it is currently used in the Basic and Radio Instrument Navigation Stages of Basic flight training. Findings are based on a detailed study of individual student reactions and on an intensive search of the pertinent literature. The study indicates that the Naval Basic Instrument Trainer is doing an effective job as an aid to teaching instrument flight, and that the expenditure for a more elaborate simulator would not be justified in terms of increased effectiveness. It also points out that the students themselves feel that the link trainer is adequately fulfilling its basic purpose of teaching procedures, scan, and the reading of instruments.
