A FLIGHT TRAINING METHOD AND A CASE STUDY ON UNMANNED AIRCRAFT VEHICLES’ PILOTS

As a higher-adult education, flight training is a tough training period for all candidates who want to be a pilot. Flight instructors play a prominent part in the educational system. Additionally, instructors assess not only the candidates’ knowledge level but also the candidates’ abilities in flight training period. Technical knowledge about a flight system can be learned by reading or studying on it. On the other hand piloting abilities have to be trained by instructors.

So, to improve and qualify flight-ability level flight training is categorized in 5 stages. These are; initial flight, contact flight, instrument flight, formation flight and navigation flight. A candidate’s psychomotor abilities on piloting can be discovered by an experienced instructor on the initial flight phase’s early period but the training and qualifying works continue. The other 4 stages are for improving the abilities and teaching the fundamentals of flying and being an airman.

Desired learning levels differ from one to another. A jet pilot’s training requires a discrepant approach rather than a lifter pilot to be used as unmanned aircraft vehicles’ pilots. Herein, Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV)’s pilots’ education needs having to be explained by the educators, according to the air operational environment. Instructors and operators are supposed to specify the non-customary properties. The UAVs pilots’ educational method and the training system have to be different from well-known ones.

This paper tries to explain an educational method in flight training phase, in the framework of a famous airman John Boyd’s OODA (Observe-Orient-Decide-Act) Loop. The training phases focus on the UAVs pilots’ education as a case study.
