Abstract:

This is the second report in a study program dealing with pilot performance, transfer of training and degree of simulation. In the experiments reported, currently qualified jet fighter pilots flew specified maneuvers using the Universal Digital Operational Flight Trainer Tool under variations of program cycle time and of aerodynamic equations. Neither increased program cycle time nor simplified equations as they were defined herein had an adverse effect on pilot performance. Furthermore, it was demonstrated that pilots could be trained on these same restricted simulator conditons and then effectively transferred to more realistic simulator conditons without any significant decrement in performance.
