Abstract:

The Armys most sophisticated flight simulator, Device 2B31, has been accepted at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Modeled after the CH-47C medium cargo helicopter, it is designed for use in the initial transition training and subsequent proficiency training for CH-47C aviators. The simulator is currently undergoing operational testing to determine to what degree it can be used to augment or replace existing training programs. Test subjects will include 24 aviators undergoing initial transition training into the CH-47C, and an additional 16 CH-47C qualified aviators using the simulator for proficiency training purposes. The test program began in January 1077 and will be completed in August 1977.
