In a study to determine whether the use of a synthetic helicopter flight training device would improve the subsequent primary flight performance of trainees at the U. S. Army Primary Helicopter School, two groups were trained to “fly” a captive helicopter mounted on a ground effects machine. The device had the approximate handling characteristics of a free‐flying vehicle, yet it allowed the trainees to obtain “aeronautical experience” not otherwise possible at their level of training.
