A Study on Transfer Effectiveness and Appropriate Training Hours in Airplane Simulators
This study is to answer questions regarding appropriate training hours, transfer effectiveness, cost reduction effects, and quantity of airplane simulators, which are typical concerns of simulator customers and operators. Technical papers and reports on simulator training effectiveness are reviewed and analyzed as well as relevant regulations of FAA. The papers and reports show similar trends with different figures, which is inherent nature of experimental studies. The primary contribution of this study is to formulate rules to determine appropriate simulator training hours and cost reduction ratios based on the previous works on TER (Transfer Effective Ratio). Cases studies show reasonable results compared with present practices in civil and military training schools.
