Abstract:

The effects of task loading on pilot performance during simulated low-altitude, high-speed flight were studied. Approximately 210 hours of flight were made by experienced pilots in a moving-base simulator that had a total vertical travel of 12 feet and an acceleration capability of 6G. The flights were made over several types of terrain at several airspeeds under different conditions of navigation task and emergency task loading. Medium heavy turbulence was simulated for all flights. Data were analyzed in terms of human performance aspects of the missions. Author
