Simulator Scene Detail and Visual Augmentation Guidance in Landing Training for Beginning Pilots 912099

Beginning flight students were taught landings in a flight simulator with a visual landing display to examine the effects of scene detail, visual augmented guidance, and the number of landing training trials. Transfer as assessed in a criterion simulator configuration showed advantages for larger numbers of training trials, visual augmented guidance, and moderate scene detail. Transfer of training to the aircraft showed advantages for low-scene detail over moderate-scene detail for the number of landing training sessions. Subjects who received equal simulator time practicing an instrument pattern (control group) performed better than the moderate-scene detail group on student assisted landings and number of landing training sessions.
