A flight test evaluation of an instrument panel display for monitoring automatic landings was performed. A DC-7 aircraft equipped with a single-channel Automatic Landing System was utilized. Over 700 automatic approaches were conducted under simulated Category III conditions. Intentional ILS path deviations or sensor failures were inserted on many of these approaches. The results of this test program were very beneficial in that solutions to problems encountered with the particular equipments have led to improved instrument layout and design. Valuable inputs also were provided to all-weather landing system developments now in the test and evaluation stage. Author
