Abstract:

APARTS is an automated training aid designed to assist the Landing Signal Officer LSO in training pilots during the acquisition of carrier landing skills. APARTS is based on general principles of learning and provides graphic displays of pilot landing technique problems for LSO evaluation and pilot feedback. APARTS also integrates Field Carrier Landing Practice FCLP, conducted in the aircraft, with Night Carrier Landing Trainer NCLT instruction. Once landing problems are identified and feedback is provided to the pilot, remedial instruction is given in the NCLT. An improved APARTS conceptual model along with two computer programs designed to process, store and graphically display pilot performance data are described. Future APARTS developments are outlined for improved carrier landing training effectiveness.
