Recent Developments and Plans for Pilot Training Devices 781007
Evolved from a research tool, the first of a family of very-low-cost part-task training devices is now being developed and will shortly enter an evaluation phase. Key to the low system cost is use of a minicomputer and graphics display in a small, stand-alone cabinet. Training features are concentrated in software, stored in a library of diskettes. Low cost and portability of systems should lead to wider availability of refresher training and consequent increases in readiness and safety.
