Sixty-four flight-naive men were tested in a fractional factorial, quasi-transfer experiment to examine the effects of four display factors, one control response factor, and one environmental factor on acquisition and transfer of aircraft landing skills. An additional 12 trainees served as experimental controls. Transfer was measured from each of 64 experimental training conditions to a criterion condition with a conventional inside-out pictorial contact display, normal simulator control… Expand
Conversion between control mechanisms in simulated flight: An ab initio quasi-transfer study
Skill acquisition in simulated flight was examined to identify differences between transfer effects facilitated by yoke and joystick flight control systems. Flight naive participants (N = 32) twiceExpand
Quasi-transfer as a predictor of transfer from simulator to airplane.
TLDR
Evidence is reviewed that indicates some correspondence between quasi-transfer and transfer effects and the development of design principles that can maximize training transfer and cost-benefit trade-offs are well established. Expand
Training Effectiveness of Flight Simulators with Outside Visual Cues
This paper reports a training experiment performed in the SIMONA Research Simulator at Delft University of Technology in which the effectiveness of outside visual cues during the development ofExpand
A Cybernetic Approach to Assess the Training of Manual Control Skills
This paper presents a cybernetic approach to assess the training of manual control skills in simulators. The approach uses multi-channel pilot models that separate pilots’ responses to visual andExpand

Transfer Of Landing Skill After Training With Supplementary Visual Cues
TLDR
An aircraft simulator with a closed-loop computer-generated visual display, was used to teach flight-naive subjects to land and showed that adaptively trained subjects performed best in a transfer task that was identical to the control group's training condition. Expand
Part-Task Training Strategies in Simulated Carrier Landing Final-Approach Training
TLDR
An interaction between aptitude and treatment indicated that the chaining method of training was particularly advantageous for low-aptitude subjects, and the simplification strategy did not appear to enhance transfer. Expand

Transfer of Training between Quickened and Unquickened Displays
TLDR
Transfer effects between quickened and unquickened displays were assessed in terms of system error rather than the displayed error used in a previous study, and transfer was positive but incomplete, a confirmation of Holland and Henson's findings. Expand
