Abstract : An investigation of the feasibility of applying automated adaptive training methods and techniques to operational flight trainers for basic flight training was conducted. The study explored the on-line restructuring of a computer controlled training course for basic instrument flight maneuvers. Performance evaluation techniques were developed to permit evaluation of student performances in real time. The study uses an R and D simulator and 'trainees' of varied flight experience. A computer controlled voice system was employed for verbal briefings, instructions, and feedback. The results indicated that these techniques can be effectively applied to both initial skill acquisition and proficiency training. The system can identify student skill deficiencies and adapt the training course to meet his training needs. (Author)
