THE TRAINING OF NAVIGATORS INTO COMPLEX SYSTEMS

Lt. Col. Paul Krause

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: When I first attempted to prepare an outline on this subject I planned to equate the training of a B-58 navigator to the training of a supersonic transport navigator. I soon found that although I was thoroughly familiar with the first part of this equation the second part had so many variables and unknowns that the equation became unworkable. I will mention a few of these unknowns now so that you can mentally refer to them throughout this discussion. Will the sonic boom problem limit supersonic transport, flying to over-water flights, or will engines available to permit aircraft to climb above 45,000 feet prior to accelerating through March 1?
