Abstract:

The objective of this study was to investigate the transfer of training from a low fidelity simulator LFS to a higher fidelity device, and subsequently to the aircraft. An attempt was made to determine both the magnitude of transfer, as well as the temporal duration of the effect. A transfer of training design was employed using 14 students entering Undergraduate Pilot Training UPT. Subjects were divided into two equal groups n 7. One group received pretraining on the LFS, while the other did not. LFS training consisted of 10 hours of basic instrument instruction conducted over a 2-week period prior to UPT entry. During LFS training, students were advanced on a proficiency basis, using objectively derived scoring procedures. Author
