Description of some of the results of Rand's Pilot Training Study, an analysis of the USAF pilot training process in terms of costs and required resources. The study has developed two types of computer simulation models--PILOT, a decision model, and a parametric resource and cost model--to aid in broad planning for pilot training over the next 20 years. They permit analysis of individual training operations with regard to syllabi, course lengths, production capacity, resources necessary, and course costs. In addition, the pilot training process can be analyzed in terms of the factors that cause the need for pilots: policy variables relating to course size, rotation of pilots for career development, pilot loss rates, and cross-training for several aircraft. 20 pp.
