Abstract:

Dynamic observation in undergraduate pilot training UPT was evaluated in an exploratory study. A primary purpose was to gain research experience in an Air Training Command operational situation, but other interesting results were obtained. The study compared the performance of three undergraduate pilot training student groups using T-4 instrument trainers. One group dynamic observers they ovserved each trainer sortie before flying it while they were observed. Members of a second group flew while observed but were not dynamic observers themselves. A third control group received trainer instruction as usual. Results indicate significant value in being observed as opposed to observing in all tasks studied. Results also indicate that dynamic observation has value in procedural tasks. Areas for further investigation are identified. Author
