Abstract:

The display characteristics referred to in this report are those which determine the speed and accuracy with which aircraft instrument displays may be interpreted and used by pilots and other operators. They in no way refer to the engineering criteria which displays must meet. It is recognized that the best displays from the pilots point of view are not always feasible because of cost, complexity, size, weight, etc. In the final selection of displays for use in aircraft compromises must be made between these factors. In cases of compromise where a choice exists between displays having different characteristics suggestions are offered as a guide to selection. Author
