Behavioral Taxonomy of Undergraduate Pilot Training Tasks and Skills: Surface Task Analysis, Taxonomy Structure, Classification Rules and Validation Plan
[Technical Report, Interim Report]
Pagination or Media Count:
The objective is to analyze and specify the fundamental flying abilities which comprise the training objectives of undergraduate pilot training UPT. The results of this analysis will be used as a foundation for structuring research on and recommendations for improvements in Air Force flying training programs. The Phase 1 effort has focused on a review of literature relevant to the development of a taxonomy of flying tasks and skills, a surface analysis of fundamental flying tasks, generation of a basic taxonomic structure and classification rules, and planning for an evaluation of the taxonomy. Analyses of relevant flying tasks are used in producing a task analysis. A concept of the pilot-aircraft system operation as been evolved and applied in configuring both the surface analysis and the taxonomy structure. Examination of previous task and skill taxonomies failed to provide a useable basis for the present effort. A procedure for evaluating the validity of the taxonomic system has been established for use during Phase 2.
