Naval Aviator Production Process Improvement
Basis For Measurement
Pre-Primary Pre-load Pilot and NFO
Measurement Definition: The number of Pilot and NFO students
graduated from API until they begin Primary Class. Include all
services (the Naval Aviators count should be available). CAT 1
Aviators only. Pilot and NFO data to be reported separately.
Calculation: Pre-Primary Pre-load = Number of students on hand at the
end of prior month + the number of students graduating from API - students
starting Primary Class.
Pre-load Size = Number of Pilot and NFO students in the Pre-primary
Pre-load at the beginning of the period including the Post-API pool
and students awaiting the next phase of training. The student data
should exclude those students who are leaving the Aviation training
track and being transferred to other areas.
Ins = Number of Pilot and NFO students graduated from API continuing
into the Primary Phase.
Outs = Number of Pilot and NFO students starting Primary Class.
