The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in task prioritization performance between pilots who participated in a CTM training course and those who did not. A pretest-posttest control group design with random assignment was used. Pilots enrolled in the Central Washington University Flight Technology Program flew pretest and posttest simulated flights on a Frasca FTD. During a two week period between pretest and posttest simulated flights pilots in the experimental group participated in a CTM training course and pilots in the control group did not. Comparison of pre- and posttest error rates shows the experimental group had a 54% decrease in task prioritization errors and the control group had a 9% increase in errors.
