Abstract : The report presents the results of the third phase of a research program to develop a behavioral taxonomy of undergraduate pilot training (UPT) tasks and skills. The Phase III effort consisted of the continued development of surface analyses to include instrument flight maneuvers, the classification of the resulting surface analysis information and its integration within the taxonomic data system, an analysis of future UPT objectives in terms of present and future flying training requirements and the development of four applications of the taxonomic data system to flying training research problems. The illustrative examples dealt with skill comparisons among different tasks, the determination of skill difficulty within and between tasks, developing standard training tasks and generating new training tasks to teach specific flying skills.
