Recent Studies of Simulation Training Effectiveness 781006
Four studies investigating the effectiveness of flight simulation training are presented. They were selected on the basis that they illustrate the training effectiveness methodology currently employed, and that they demonstrate the potential value of simulation training. These four efforts address: (1) the training effectiveness of platform motion; (2) the relative effectiveness of alternate visual systems; (3) the effectiveness of generalized surface attack training; and, (4) the effectiveness of A-10 simulation training. These studies are discussed in terms of implications regarding required levels of fidelity as well as the potential value of the training.
