During the last decade flight simulators have been increasingly used in the training in the training of the Israeli pilots. The increasing cost of a training flyng hour, the shrinking training airspace over Israel since 1979, and the high performance standards required of the Israeli Air Force air crews were the accelerator factors in this process. This thesis describes a way to analyze the cost effectiveness of the present mix of flight simulators and flying hours in the training process of the I.A.F. air crews. The jet fighters, helicopters, and transportation communities are used as examples to demonstrate the implementation of the analysis. These examples give the reader a general picture of the cost effectiveness of using flight simulators in the I.A.F. Author
