Aircrew education and evaluation is designed for execs within the aviation psychology, human components, evaluate and overview, vocational, technical, academic psychology, and academic expertise groups. It explores the state-of-the-art within the education and evaluation of aircrews and features a evaluation and outline of using simulations within the zone of aircrew education and evaluate. An aircrew comprises a number of folks who're accountable for reaching a project aim via use of an plane. counting on one's viewpoint, an aircrew could be as small as one pilot flying a single-seat airplane, or as huge as an entire staff working an airliner. regardless of advances in aircrew choice and human components engineering recommendations, the necessity for greater aircrew education continues to be with ease obvious. for instance, within the army, the missions requiring aircrews retain getting extra advanced. Simulation is used commonly in either army and civilian education to accommodate this complexity. The booklet is prepared into significant sections: versions and instruments for education of aircrews and types and instruments for overview of aircrew education. either army and civilian environments are lined, in addition to person and staff education.

Sample text

The training course outline must follow the guidelines for both ground and flight instruction listed in Part 141. The minimum flight times permitted under Part 141 are less than the minimum required of Part 61 training. Part 141 allows the commercial pilot certificate to be issued with a total of 190 flight hours, whereas Part 61 requires 250 hours. The chief pilot and assistant chief pilot(s) for Part 141 schools must meet specific aeronautical and teaching requirements not required under Part 61.

Both commercial airlines and military have a flight engineer position, but in civil aviation this person is a pilot, whereas in the military the flight engineer is not trained as a pilot. In the United States, a number of organizations play an important role in aircrew training for civil aviation. These include the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the airlines, the military, universities, fixed base operators, aircraft manufacturers, training device and simulator manufacturers, and organizations that represent aircrews.

In many cases, there is a significant body of research and experience that is discussed. In other cases, the training community is just starting to articulate the key training and assessment issues. The data that are reported were collected in various settings, for instance, military aviation laboratories and industrial settings. The chapter authors have extensive backgrounds in the topics they will address and they highlight topics where considerable training and assessment R&D needs to be performed.
