Abstract : The purpose of the invention is to provide a training device that is easy to construct, inexpensive and is easily and quickly put in to use. The device is a glove, worn by the pilot and used to grasp the control stick of the helicopter. The glove has a fluid pressure chamber on the fingers of the glove and another pressure chamber at the base of the thumb on the palm of the glove. These two pressure chambers are connected by a transparent flexible tube with runs from one pressure chamber across the back of the glove to the other pressure chamber. A small nylon ball movable within the transparent tubing indicates a positive or a negative pressure.
