Abstract:

This study was designed to identify the specific inadequacies in flight manuals, and to recommend ways and means for their correction. To this end, the Navy pilot population was selectively sampled by questionnaires and interviews, while representative flight handbooks underwent critical analysis. Within the framework of determinin realistic information requirements and optimizing the physical characteristics of the handbooks, the data derived from these two approaches were integrated. Specific problems associated with such factors as format, organization, color application, readibility, level of explanation, utilization practices, revision procedures, and kneepadpocket checklists were treated. Recommendations for improvement of flight handbooks are presented with detailed instructions, illustrations, and rationale. Author
