Abstract:

A number of simulation features have been incorporated into military flight simulators in the belief that they add to the realism and, therefore, increase the training value e.g., G-suit and G-seat simulation, visual dimming to simulate Gs. Motion simulation has been in this category however, transfer of training studies have generally yielded inconclusive answers or lack of positive training value of motion for both multi-engine and fighterattack simulators. Few studies have addressed the contribution of motion simulation to the training of helicopter pilots. This is the second in a series of four studies designed to assess the training effectiveness of the Device 2F64C, SH-3 helicopter flight simulator. The overall program is concerned with evaluating the training effectiveness of the device in various configurations. The present study was concerned with assessing the contribution of motion simulation to the training of helicopter fleet replacement pilots assessing the engineering fidelity of the motion platform concurrent with the study to insure that it was performing to design specifications and identifying variables that are predictive of training success in fleet replacement training environment.
