Abstract : Transfer of training studies were conducted to determine the training feasibility of simulations reduced by varying aerodynamic coefficients in two ways, rigid coefficients and least squares approximations to the coefficients. Experiment One incorporated the coefficient changes in the longitudinal mode; Experiment Two in the lateral mode; and Experiment Three in the combined longitudinal and lateral modes. On the basis of study results, it was concluded that feasibility of these reduced simulations as conditions for training was demonstrated. (Author)
