EFFECTIVENESS OF A PILOT GROUND TRAINER AS A PART TASK INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES FLIGHT-CHECKING DEVICE - STAGE I
The first stage of a two-stage experiment was conducted at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC) to determine the effectiveness of a pilot ground trainer for training noninstrument-rated pilots in instrument approaches and related instrument flight procedures. Ten private pilots were trained to perform very high frequency omnirange station (VOR), automatic direction finder (ADF), and instrument landing system (ILS) approaches. The pilot ground trainer represented a single-engine general aviation aircraft. The subjects' flight performance capability, achieved through ground trainer instruction, was evaluated by a flight check in an instrument-equipped Cessna 172. The report provides information about trainer equipment and capabilities which contributed to the positive transfer. Procedural maneuver situations which resulted in minimal training transfer are discussed in terms of desirable ground trainer capabilities which could enhance the effectiveness of the pilot ground trainer for performing instrument flight approaches.
