A prototype nap-of-earth NOE training device, developed at Fort Benning, was evaluated for possible use at US Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker. 44 NOE-qualified instructor pilots tried the device and evaluated its potential training effectiveness along a 24-item, 8-point scale. The scale covered the essential areas of pilotcopilot familiarization, preflight navigation, realism, minimizing flying hours, terrain interpretation, and intercrew coordination. Pooled ratings from the instructor pilots indicated that developing the possibilities of the device would not be cost-effective, in view of existing devices at Fort Rucker.
