The report discusses the use of wide angle cinematic simulators in pilot training intended to augment the training received by U.S. Navy replacement pilots undertaking advanced flight training in low-altitude attack operations. Since chart interpretation is essentially a process of correlating the actual visual scene with its representation on an aeronautical chart, the special characteristics of the low-altitude visual scene and the inherent limitations of aeronautical charts as representations of the earths surface are described. Then, factors that are critical to accurate interpretation of different classes of features portrayed on charts are discussed and illustrated. Modified author abstract
