Abstract:

The study evaluated the effectiveness of the Carrier Air Traffic Control Center CATCC training device in training teams to safely and efficiently control aircraft recoveries and to effectively maintain communications necessary to implement this control function. The results indicate the device is quite effective in that team, subteam, and individual performances generally improve during training that student capability to deal with recovery contingencies and emergencies improves that students generally perform acceptably in the operational job setting and that empirical evidence supports but does not prove due to the study design the transfer of training hypothesis and that students gave the device moderate to high ratings on realism and effectiveness characteristics. It was concluded that device effectiveness could be further improved and that recommendations were worth consideration due to the considerable impact CATCC has on the efficiency and safety of carrier recovery operations.
