Abstract:

The objectives of the study were 1 to evaluate the training effectiveness of the Automated Flight Training AFTS in the F-4 training program 2 to identify desired hardware and software modifications for operational AFTS devices and 3 to identify effective methods of operational training use. The study was performed at Luke AFB, Arizona at the request of the Tactical Air Command TAC. A class of 24 students assigned to F-4 combat crew training was randomly divided in two equal sized groups. One group received GCA training using the AFTS. The other group received normal GCA training from F-4 instructors. Performance data, questionnaire data, and maintenance data were collected and analyzed. Implications of the data for future use and procurement of additional systems are discussed.
