Pagination or Media Count:
An evaluation of the training effectiveness of ECII-LP simulators was undertaken using the participant-observer method. Comparisons were made between two aviation courses--pilot FAM which used the ECII-LPs to familiarize student pilots and instructor pilots with the T-2C aircraft, and NFO FAM which used transparencies, study guides, MTUs, and chalk boards to present familiarization training. As a result of this study the following recommendations are made 1 Basic cockpit procedures training objectives of the FAM courses be recognized officially 2 Completely documented training scenarios which relate simulator use to specific behavioral objectives be developed 3 Better maintenance support be provided 4 Improvements be made in the rear projection visual system and panel replacement and 5 Instructor Managed Instruction procedures be adopted in order to avoid problems associated with differences in student aptitudes, skills, and experience, as well as variations in instructor delivery and organization. A summative evaluation of the ECII-LPs should be delayed until major course modifications have been made.
