Since F-15s and F-16s flying peacetime missions were configured differently from wartime missions, researchers at Armstrong Laboratories found that “negative” training was occurring in the air that could be overcome with early design of simulators with a full-fidelity cockpit.

Additional Concerns and Caveats Funding The advanced simulator facilities have funding issues. Currently, no operational fighter, including the F-15C, is fully supported by DMOcapable simulator systems. 19 The Block 50 version of the F-16C is currently the only other fighter with an advanced simulator capability, and the remaining F-16Cs, as well as the F-15Es and A/OA-10s, all have simulator funding issues that need to be resolved. Even projected F-22A units have simulator funding issues. For the concept of coordinated and 18 This problem is dynamic, so it is difficult to quantify accurately.

Except for brief periods in which the assignment system was required to react abruptly to significant policy changes, it remained valid for over two decades. However, recent RAND analysis has raised strong concerns about whether the assumption that aircrews can continue their operational development once they meet their weapon system’s experience defini12 As discussed previously, contingency sorties do provide limited amounts of training initially, but the value of the training degrades rapidly with continued repetition.
