Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to examine a deficiency in the Navys P-3 flight crew training curriculum in the area of windshear and microburst survival and to analyze the requirements necessary for an effective training program. An analysis was conducted to identify training objectives, equate them to learning outcomes, and recommend media to support the training. The resulting media combination is presently available at each Fleet Replacement Squadron. Additional recommendations were made concerning training materials, costs and benefits, and windshear technology. Many of the procedures written in the P-3 NATOPS manual are the result of a major incident or the loss of lives. This thesis provides information necessary to implement a training program and procedures that could possibly save an aircraft and its crew. Keywords Naval patrol aircraft Naval flight training Flight maneuvers Flight crews survival personnel Instructional materials Wind shear. Theses.
