Abstract : The second in a series of reports on a longitudinal study pertaining to the question of whether training time can be reduced in basic airborne electronics training through judicious revision of the course. The report compares the performance of 108 students, divided into four matched groups of 27 students each, on the basis of a comprehensive test of their knowledge of certain airborne electronic equipment included in the course. The training times of the four groups were 22 weeks, 25 weeks, 27 weeks, and 30 weeks. The results indicated an overall statistically significant difference (.01 level) attributable to training time. Differences between adjacent training times were not statistically significant.
