Abstract : The purpose of the project was to determine the effectiveness of a simple low-cost visual approach slope indicator (VASI) in developing and reenforcing proper aircraft control technique during approach and landing under actual pilot training conditions. A simplified two-box, single-lamp system was evaluated at two pilot training schools which summarized the results of training given to comparable groups of student pilots instructed with and without the use of the abbreviated VASI.
