Abstract:

Three models of skill acquisition are proposed 1 Nonsituational, 2 Intermediate, and 3 Situational. It is argued that only the third can account for highly skilled performance. The type of emergency training program each suggests and the level of pilot performance that each can be expected to produce is then investigated. We conclude that only training based on the situational model could possibly produce highly skilled emergency response behavior.
