Abstract : The purpose of the study was to take a fresh and independent look at flying training requirements unhampered by the current training program and the traditional approach. The report presents a systems methodology for determining knowledges and skills common to piloting tasks required by differing aircraft-missions for the purpose of structuring a data base from which an operational tasks oriented flying training program could be developed. The general approach was to identify and classify the specific tasks performed by USAF pilots and the level of proficiency required on each task for successful performance in current and projected assignments in operational units using present and projected aircraft. The study was planned to encompass cross-system analysis and the integration of pilot tasks data into the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory's computer based data bank. Therefore, inqueries across and within aircraft systems pertaining to piloting tasks, training requirements, and performance standards would be possible. Criteria for establishing common mission segments, tasks and cockpit subsystem hardware are presented. The technique for analyzing common tasks is presented in relation to assumptions regarding the type of training programs to which the data could apply. Rules for describing task activities and preparing the data for insertion into the computer based data bank are given. (Author)
