For almost 15 years an active research program was conducted on techniques for measuring the flight performance of helicopter trainees and pilots. This program addressed both the elemental aspects of flying i.e., maneuvers and the mission- or goal-oriented aspects. A variety of approaches was investigated, with the stress on nonautomated techniques feasible for operational use. The paper describes the work and illustrates its application to and implications for training management, quality control, manpower resources management, and operational capability. Automated human performance monitoring in flight simulators and its implications for automated training is also described.
