Abstract:

A study was performed to determine the effect of time on the instrument skill of non-instrument rated private and commercial pilots. Sixty-six private and commercial pilots, who had had their licenses from 6 months to 9 years, were used as subjects. Results show an apparent decline in instrument proficiency with time for the private pilot and to a lesser degree for the commercial pilot. This proficiency can be regained with an average of 2-12 hours flight instruction plus 50 minutes ground instruction for the private pilots and 1-12 hours flight instruction plus 25 minutes ground instruction for the commercial pilots.
