In order to improve design from an instructional standpoint, an analysis was made of instructor activity in operational flight trainers. A steering committee consisting of engineers, training specialists, maintenance and requirements personnel recommended that the study concentrate on the F9F-5 and P2V-5 operational flight trainers as typical. These trainers were studied both in the training command and in fleet training in terms of current utilization and in terms of a maximum utilization program. This latter was defined as a training regime composed of a set of problems using the full training potential of the device. This was seen as having important design implications if using the trainer at its full potential saturates the instructor.
