Abstract:

This Technical Report documents the structure of an aggregate representation of a system which governs the recruitment, training, and allocation of Air Force pilots. While the model is highly simplified, it captures many of the essential policies and decisions which generate the dynamic behavior of the overall system. Specifically, the model takes as given the authorized flying hours and aircraft available to the Air Force it combines these data with information about projected strength levels in the pilot force to determine training requirements. These training requirements are used to establish the requirements for Undergraduate Pilot Training UPT instructors and recruiting quotas. The model then allocates the existing force among three categories 1 the active mission force, 2 UPT instructors, 3 the rated supplement. The model can be used to examine such things as overall policies controlling UPT instructor force size, information usage in the determination of UPT class size, and allowable limits of variation on the UPT instructor to student ratios. It also can be used to test the sensitivity of system adjustment process to exogenous impacts. Author
