dc.description.abstractThe Congress of the United States, in an attempt to reduce Department of Defense (DOD) spending, has recommended an interservice consolid1tion of Undergraduate Helicopter Pilot Training (UHPT). DOD, in the FY77 budget proposal, indicated its intention to consolidate UHPT at Fort Rucker, Alabama. The proposal bases its cost savings, to a large degree, on the elimination of the fixed-wing phase of Navy helicopter pilot training and the "release" of an unidentified Navy training base. This thesis examines fixed-wing training as a part of helicopter pilot training and the implied savings attributed to consolidation as proposed. Alternatives to the DOD proposal are also discussed in light of their costs (both quantifiable and non-quantifiable), their importance, and their impact on the training of Navy and Marine Corps helicopter pilots. The authors conclude, for a variety of reasons, that the DOD proposal considered is not cost-effective.
