FOOTPRINTS TO TOTAL TRAINING THROUGH SIMULATION

The achievements of the astronauts have proven beyond a doubt that training to proficiency on the most complex of tasks can effectively be accomplished using simulation. Thus there is every reason to be confident that training programs using methods, procedures, and hardware specifically designed to meet airline requirements and budget restrictions, can just as effectively accomplish total airline training through simulation. American Airlines responded to the challenge of the 1960s by developing a training system that produced an unparalleled record for safety both in training and operations. At the same time our efforts toward the "total training through simulation" concept reduced training cost, saved fuel, conserved air space, and cut down on pollution. In today's world of fuel shortages, crowded skies, and unstable airline income, performance must equal the challenge.
