    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Även om civil flygindustri har genomgått stora teknologiska och kommersiella förändringar under de senaste årtiondena så har grundläggande civil flygutbildning inte förändrats på motsvarande sätt. Förändringarna inom civilflyget har sällan resulterat i forskningsprogram med inriktning mot grundläggande flygutbildning och denna utbildningsfas har länge varit föremål för minimal uppmärksamhet från den industrin.
