A Training-Transfer Experiment to Evaluate the Importance of Classroom Instruction in a Flight Simulator Based Upset Recovery Training Program

The purpose of this research is to determine the effect of classroom only training for upset recovery training. Upset recovery training is an expensive undertaking. It would be an extremely important finding if classroom training by itself proves as beneficial as classroom training combined with simulator training. Such a result could lead to reduced costs in upset recovery training throughout the aviation industry. On the other hand, a finding that classroom training by itself is not sufficient would constitute justification for the significant dollars currently being devoted to simulator-based upset recovery training.
