Abstract
DEVELOPMENT OF A PC-BASED FLIGHT INSTRUCTION TUTORING SYSTEM WILL IMPROVE THE MOST BASIC CAPABILITIES OF AIR FORCE FLIGHT PERSONNEL, STANDARDIZE INITIAL TRAINING OF THE BASIC CONCEPTS OF FLIGHT, PROVIDE A FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF MODERN TRAINING METHODS, AND ALLOW INNOVATIONS ADDRESSING THIS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES TO BE STUDIED IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE AN EXCELLENT TRAINING ENVIRONMENT FOR THE DECLARATIVE AND PROCEDURAL STAGES OF THE LEARNING PROCESS. PHASE I WILL PRODUCE A SYSTEM POSSESSING A RANGE OF PRESENTATION METHODS (INCLUDING TEXT, STATIC AND DYNAMIC GRAPHICS), PLUS A T-41/C-172 FLIGHT SIMULATION CAPABILITY. A LESSON PLAN PROVIDING INSTRUCTION IN CONSTANT BANK TURNS AND ACCELERATED STALLS IS PROPOSED FOR PHASE I, WITH DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPLETE SYLLABUS FOR PRIMARY FLIGHT TRAINING TO BE PERFORMED DURING PHASE II.
