Pagination or Media Count:
The utility of a general aviation trainer GAT-1 in the light aircraft pilot indoctrination program at the U.S. Air Force Academy was demonstrated using fifty-six Academy cadets as subjects in four groups control, automated GAT instructions, delayed entry, and GAT training by an instructor pilot. The results indicate GAT-1 training greatly facilitated initial progress in the light aircraft flight instruction program, and that instructors working with the students in the GAT-1 can make reasonably good prediction of success in the flight program. The incorporation of such a device in the flight instruction program could enhance safety and result in monetary savings.
