Abstract : Navigator training programs and syllabi have gone through numerous evolutions to provide students with the requisite knowledge, skills, and experience to enter combat crew training. Similarly, flight simulators have been the focus of many Air Force modernization programs designed to enhance simulator capabilities across a wide spectrum. State-of-the-art technology has brought about advanced flight simulators with sophisticated visual systems, highly realistic crew training and enhanced instructor roles. Cost considerations aside, questions still remain as to whether modern flight simulators are, or will be, feasibly capable of adapting students to the simulators are or will be feasibly capable of adapting students to the physical and psychological stresses of flight, or adequately preparing them to enter combat crew training. This research specifically examines the potential feasibility of an all-simulator program for the Tanker, Transport, and Bomber track of Specialized Undergraduate Navigator Training.
