Abstract:
Hovering flight is a critical skill that must be acquired by neophyte helicopter pilots prior to learning other flight maneuvers. Hover training in the aircraft is potentially dangerous given the tendency for neophytes to overcontrol the helicopter near the ground. It is also expensive. The Army uses the UH-1 helicopter for Primary Phase hover training at a cost of approximately $700.00 per hour with a hover training requirement of approximately 10-14 hours per student. The Automated Hover Trainer (AHT) was designed to provide ab initio pilots with safe, low-cost training in the basic hovering maneuvers: stationary hover, hover taxi, hovering turns, and takeoff to and land from a hover. Research was performed to assess the effectiveness of the AHT by measuring the Transfer of Training (TOT) from the AHT simulator to the helicopter using Army flight students as research subjects. Significant positive TOT was demonstrated for all five hovering maneuvers.
