In this case study, researchers investigated the instructional methods used to train private pilot students at Utah Valley University. Traditional one-on-one individualized learning methods were replaced with cooperative learning methods. Descriptive statistics were used to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the cooperative learning methods used. Reduced training time, less repeated lessons and a reduced number of flight hours showed that cooperative learning methods were more efficient and a more effective way to train private pilot students at Utah Valley University.
