A description of the program, overlay structure, input deck, and the output of the undergraduate pilot training (UPT) computer model, which will estimate requirements for manpower, supplies, equipment, services, and facilities of the UPT system and the costs of these resources. Options are provided for estimating current or long-range costs of existing programs or the impact that virtually any program change will have on required resources and costs. Input is by card and output is printed. There are three options:(1) 11 tables of information on student loads, base capabilities, the UPT program, manpower, aircraft, and simulator requirements for each base, and costs, by base and not assignable to base, by phase and not allocated to phase, and for all bases by type, by base, and by phase; (2) the values of all the variables, including those in the 11 tables; and (3) only the variables associated with facilities. The program flowchart and listings of the program input data elements and of the FORTRAN IV computer program are appended. (See also RM-6080 through RM-6083, RM-6085 through RM-6087.)
