Abstract : During the course of a six-month training period, wing schedulers are tasked with revising their planned flying schedules. The objective of this research was to build an interactive model that would determine a sortie rate to follow one F-4E squadron to maintain a predetermined level of training. A model of the flying operations of the squadron was constructed using the Q-GERT simulation language. This model provided the data base for effective sorties flown by experienced and inexperienced pilots. Regression lines were constructed for both classees of pilots with attrition being the independent variable and effective sorties being the dependent variable. The regression coefficients were then incorporated into a model to evaluate sortie rates. The sortie rate obtained from the model is one that will allow the squadron to maintain at least the desired training level. (Author)
