Abstract : This report describes an investigation of the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) regarding application of advanced modeling and simulation technologies. The effort revealed training challenges within the program for which modern technologies offer training improvements and solutions. Potential solutions span the full spectrum of current activities from academics to flightline training. The study describes the methodology used in identifying and analyzing training problems as well as the process for selecting appropriate technologies. It also suggests an investment strategy for acquiring and integrating technologies within SUPT. Finally, a preliminary cost benefits model is described as a tool for assessing cost/training benefits prior to technology investment.
