Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to list and discuss the constraints and limits of the various instructional media employed in F-16 training, with the purpose of targeting these limitations for future upgrading. The five major limitations include 1 the limited number of training devices available, 2 the unavailability of certain types of training devices, 3 the inability to impact the design of training devices because of the exceptionally long procurement cycle, 4 the use of less than optimal devices, and 5 the limited range of media available for implementation in the F-16 training system. The report identifies four conditions that acted to predispose the media selection process to the constraints identified above. First, the F-16 syllabus had to be constructed to meet preexisting aircraft use level expectations instead of allowing instructional considerations to drive the use level. Second, major training devices were designed and procured before specific training uses for those devices were generated. Third, no instructional design expertise was employed during the initial stages of training device design and procurement. Finally, adequate funds and command attention were not directed to the procurement of major F-16 training devices.
