Abstract:

It is believed that observance of the following guidelines can result in effective devices that allow increases in efficiency and economy in training, as well as real increases in flight safety 1 Training devices should be built only after careful analysis of the training requirements. 2 Analysis of training requirements should be primarily psychological rather than engineering in nature. 3 Determination of device characteristics should be oriented toward providing task fidelity, with physical fidelity being provided only as necessary to task fidelity. 4 Synthetic training programs should receive as careful consideration in their development as do the trainers themselves. 5 Devices and synthetic training programs should be tested for training effectiveness just as aircraft are tested. 6 Training devices and simulators can provide an effective means of reinforcing infrequently occurring behaviors.
