Abstract:

Three groups of thirty pilots with multi-engine and instrument ratings performed a simulated flight mission in a General Aviation Trainer on each of two days. The experimental conditions for the groups differed in terms of GAT-2 motion no motion sustained linear, scaled-down analog motion and washout motion. Each group of pilots then flew the same mission in a light twin-engine aircraft representative of the class of aircraft simulated by the GAT-2. The results indicated that the proficiency of aircraft pilots can be predicted to a high degree from ground-based simulator performance measures. Modified author abstract
