Abstract : This is a report of the analytical development of qualification guidelines for personal computer based aviation training devices (PCATDs) for use in instrument flight training. The report includes a task analysis of instrument flight tasks, along with baseline and task-specific guidelines that were developed as a result of the analysis. In addition a PCATD qualification tool is presented in the appendix for use in approving a Part 141 flight school curriculum that incorporates a PCATD for use as a ground training aid. The purpose of this paper is to provide the reader with an understanding of the process and reasoning behind the development of the PCATD qualification guidelines.
