One phase of an innovative flight training program, its development, and initial administration is described in this paper. The operational suitability test activities related to a determination of the transfer of instrument training value of the Armys Synthetic Flight Training System SFTS Device 2B24. Sixteen active Army members of an Officer Rotary Wing Aviator Course who had completed primary training and 9 Instructor Pilots participated in the study. Instrument training was conducted in the SFTS on a proficiency basis. Aircraft checkrides were administered by independent evaluator personnel. Checkride times and grades showed that much of the training now conducted in aircraft could be conducted more efficiently on the ground.
