Abstract:

Our objectives were to determine whether the services are sufficiently analyzing their training needs and identifying those tasks that can best be taught on flight simulators and whether simulators are training pilots to do the tasks intended. We selected seven flight simulators that were among the services highest 20 percent in terms of total dollars invested were used to train personnel for critical jobs tasks that contribute substantially to readiness and had been fully operational for at least 2 years. The locations we visited were in geographical areas within large concentrations of simulators. At each location, we examined course syllabi to determine how the simulators were to be used. We also determined how the simulators were being used, benefits derived, and problems with the simulators. author
