EVALUATION OF A COMPLEX COMPUTER-BASED FLIGHT PROCEDURES TRAINER

Skills such as flying holding patterns are taught in planes or simulators. An alternative method is to use computer-assisted instruction (CAI) which emphasizes training requirements rather than physical fidelity. Such a program was written and evaluated. Traditional ground school methods were compared with the CAI method. All subjects completed a training sequence in a ground trainer. Those taught by computer performed better and attained criterion quicker with significantly fewer critical errors. Results indicate that CAI offers an effective alternate to the costly trainers currently in use.
