Abstract:

Assessment by the user pilot is an important source of information as to the efficiency of aircraft display and control systems. Information of value to life scientists and engineers can be gained and reduced to quantitative form by use of open ended questions. In the study reported 229 civilian airline pilots responded to 5 open ended questions, about design and layout of their cockpit. They most often criticised their Radio and Navigation aids. Application of these results is discussed. Author
