Abstract:

This is a report from a program of studies of VSTOL handling qualities. Simple electronic equipment was used to assess psychomotor capabilities. The task provided a zero-input compensatory rate-tracking test with variable system sensitivity. Two groups of ten subjects each were placed on different schedules for training and testing. The integrated absolute-error scores suggested that the rate-tracking task had face validity and discriminated reliably among subjects. Preliminary indications were that the test was insensitive to flight time.
