This is a report of an occupational survey of personnel an the Digital Flight Simulator career ladder by the Occupational Survey Branch, USAF Occupational Measurement Center, completed during October 1978. This specialty was created in April 1976, when the AFS 342X0, Flight Simulator career ladder was split forming AFS 341X4 and AFS 341X3 Analog Flight Simulator career ladder. An occupational survey of the AFS 342X0 had been conducted and results published in March 1974. Responsible primarily for the operation and maintenance of digital flight simulators and associated equipment, personnel usually enter this career ladder by first attending the C3ABR34134 Digital Flight Simulator Specialist course at Chanute AFB, Illinois. These personnel may be either pipeline students from basic training or retrainees from other career specialties. Upon completion of this 15 week four day course, graduates are awarded the 3-skill level. They are then assigned to operational units worldwide possessing digital flight simulators. Currently the career ladder is slightly overmanned in the seven through nine and 12 year groups, but slightly under strength in the grade of E-5 as reported in the USAF Retraining Advisory.
