Abstract:

An evaluation was conducted to compare the effectiveness of different types of ground trainers when used in the private pilot flight training program. One objective was to determine standards for identifying ground trainers in which instruction would be acceptable toward pilot certification requirements. A second objective was to determine how much time in a trainer might be substituted for actual flight time. No specified design or operational standards for ground trainers is recommended. Results showed that average total airplane time to reach private pilot proficiency was reduced by 16. A 15 substitution of trainer time for airplane instruction time is recommended in the approved 35-hour primary flight curriculum requirements. Author
