Abstract : This report describes an evaluation of the training effectiveness and suitability of an interactive simulation device and its instructional and simulation software used in connection with SH-3 helicopter electro-mechanical bladefold system training in the Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment training environment. Although the study did not have sufficient subjects in all measurement categories for the application of statistical analysis methods, the results indicate that the training device is an effective supplement to both hydraulic and electrical systems training currently being performed on the SH-3 helicopter composite trainer. Trainees using the interactive training system required less time to complete troubleshooting exercises on the composite trainer, made fewer replacement errors, and obtained higher grades on written tests relating to the bladefold systems. Keywords:Maintenance training, Training simulation, Troubleshooting, Bladefold electro-mechanical training system, Computer-assisted instruction.
