Abstract:

This is a report of an occupational survey of personnel in the Analog Flight Simulator career ladder completed by the Occupational Survey Branch, USAF Occupational Measurement Center, during October 1978. This specialty was created in April 1976, when the AFS 342X0, Flight Simulator career ladder, was split forming AFS 341X3 and AFS 341X4 Digital 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 analog flight simulators and associated equipment, personnel usually enter this career ladder by first attending the C3ABR34133 Analog Flight Simulator Specialists Course at Chanute AFB, Illinois. These personnel may be either pipeline students from basic training or retrainees from other specialties. Upon completion of this 15 week three day course, graduates are awarded the 3-skill level. They are then assigned to operational units worldwide possessing analog flight simulators. Curently the largest career ladder in terms of personnel assigned within the Training Devices career field, it is considered to be relatively balanced according to the USAF Retraining Advisory.
