CAPABILITIES, NECESSARY CHARACTERISTICS AND EFFECTIVENESS OF PILOT GROUND TRAINERS, PHASE II. VISUAL REFERENCE FLIGHT MANEUVERS

An experiment was conducted to determine the capabilities and effectiveness of pilot ground trainers developing primary aeronautical skills. Ten nonpilot subjects were trained in presolo visual flight rules (VFR) flight maneuvers using a fixed-base pilot ground trainer. A visual display provided the VFR environment simulating motion in pitch, roll, and yaw. Project results indicate that positive and effective transfer of training can be achieved.
