Abstract : This report describes: (1) The research capabilities of AFHRL/FT, with particular emphasis upon the advanced simulator for undergraduate pilot training (ASUPT); (2) Results of a prioritization of potential flying research issues by a panel of experts; (3) Contractor recommendations for initial AFHRL/FI experimental investigations, and (4) the AFHRL/FT facility utilization program for calendar year 1975. The concept of 'performance equivalence' between simulator and aircraft is presented along with a description of suggested studies designed to validate the concept. Utilization of automated performance measures on both system outputs and pilot control inputs forms an essential element of the model.
