Abstract:

The mathematical description of human pilot dynamic characteristics has been based primarily upon data obtained in constrained ground-based simulator experiments. Whether or not it is valid to extrapolate the use of these descriptions to actual flight is a prevalent question. Reported herein are data which describe the pilots dynamics in both ground-based simulator and actual flight situations for the constrained situation of a compensatory roll tracking task. Additionally, data are presented for ground-based simulator measurements of pilot dynamics as the pilot controls a simple integrator system and a divergent system. Author
