The Direct Impact of a Flight Simulation Training Device on Student Pilot’s Flight Training : A Survey

Sera Rüya Beköz, Havvali Akteke
This survey analyzed data of student pilots who were trained in the flight simulation training device (FSTD) in our institute before their inflight trainings started. The data from the FSTD revealed three most frequent reasons for student pilot failure in the given tasks. Fails and retakes of FSTD training numbers indicate the most problematic areas that students should master prior to inflight training. For the survey, a questionnaire was given to eight flight instructors. It was found that, FSTD training advances students who are capable in checklist utilization and communication observed in their first five hours of inflight training. The resulting data shows that the use of the FSTD for flight training before student pilots’ inflight training starts is highly advantageous.


Dear Authors, Reviewers and Readers

I am proud to announce that The Journal of Civil Aviation (JCivilAvia) has now been accessible on line for all the authors, reviewers and readers all around the world, expecting them to contribute their original unpublished research, scholarly essays, critical commentaries, and letters to the editor as well as the case reports which are free of charge.

JCivilAvia is a biannually published journal.  As a biannual journal, printed version will have no paper or page limit and authors will not have to keep waiting for a further issue.  I believe, the submission process of the journal will also be fast but rigorous.

On behalf of my associate editors and all other staff , I thank you for your contributions.
