Abstract:In Experiment II, we therefore examined a range of ADI PTT training regimes that explicitly varied the extent to which this training is dynamic, and also which explicitly considered the training of pursuit movements. An additional feature of Experiment II, missing from Experiment I, was a systematic effort to create a mental model of flight dynamics for all subjects, which would therefore provide a context into which ADI information extraction could be incorporated. Five groups of flight-naive subjects were first provided with a standardized flight and scan familiarization program. Three groups then received ADI PTT. One control group received no special training or practice, and another was afforded only practice time. They all 'flew' the same 7-segment task as in Experiment I. Tracking performance and scan data were analyzed. The results suggest that whereas PTT without mental model development training (bottom-up PTT) provided limited benefits to flight performance, top-down mental model building appears to rapidly foster expert-like performance.
