Abstract:

It is only recently that the military has accepted training in the flight simulator as a substitute for training in the aircraft. A most compelling reason for this acceptance has been the fuel crisis. The emphasis on fuel economy as reflected in a United States Department of Defense planning goal, calling for a 25 percent reduction in hours flown by FY 1981, has intensified the interest in the cost savings associated with simulator substitution practices.
