The Role of the Small Jet in the Airline Training Syllabus 680272

During the early part of 1967 the Lockheed-Georgia Co. initiated a program to determine the feasibility of utilizing the Lockheed JetStar as a trainer for airline pilots in order to reduce the flight time required in line equipment. Most U.S. airlines were contacted; airlines, as well as FAA operations personnel, evaluated the airplane in flight as a trainer, and participated in developing the techniques to provide the most useful training.
This paper summarizes the development of this program and presents some preliminary conclusions on the economic advantages gained from utilizing the small jet in the airline training syllabus. Some discussion of the future development of the small jet required to simulate such aircraft as the 747 and SST is also included.
