Abstract : The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effectiveness of Personal Computer Aviation Training Devises (PCATDs) and Flight Training Devices (FTDs) to meet FAA recency of experience requirements for instrument flight. Two types of training devices were tested: 1) an FAA approved PCATD; and 2) a Frasca 141 FTD. An Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) was given to all subjects in the airplane to establish a performance baseline (IPC #1). After the completion of IPC #1 in the…

COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A PERSONAL COMPUTER AVIATION TRAINING DEVICE, A FLIGHT TRAINING DEVICE, AND AN AIRPLANE IN CONDUCTING INSTRUMENT PROFICIENCY CHECKS
TLDR
This project seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of a personal computer aviation training device (PCATD) and a FTD in conducting an IPC and the comparison between a Frasca and the airplane will determine whether the current rule to permit IPCs in aFTD is warranted.
The Effectiveness of a Personal Computer Aviation Training Device (PCATD), a Flight Training Device (FTD), and an Airplane in Conducting Instrument Proficiency Checks
TLDR
Findings provide compelling evidence for permitting the use of PCATDs to give IPCs, and a series of planned-comparison tests showed statistically significant differences between groups.
