Abstract : Several printed prototype programs for training visual aircraft recognition were developed and compared experimentally. One program produced and average score of 95% on a printed recognition test (the next closest group test had more than twice as many errors). The program also tended to take the least time to administer (about 15 minutes per aircraft). The training was in three phases: Study of Multi-Image Cards (each showing several views of one aircraft, listing distinctive features); Study of Paired Comparison cards (each showing two or three aircraft that are likely to be confused; Study of Flash Cards (each showing one view of one aircraft--10 different cards for each aircraft). After each phase, tests with printed imagery were administered. The program should be feasible and effective for routine training. (Author)
