Abstract:

The primary objective of the study was to investigate, by means of real-time man-in-the-loop simulation techniques, piloting performance as influenced by wind, system data-rate, and contingency-event variables during IFR steep approaches with vertical-lift aircraft. By also simultaneously evaluating effects of display-format, approach-angle and measurement-noise variables to the extent possible within the scope of each study task, an increased degree of generality of study results was obtained. A variable-velocity simulation of the Bell UH-i helicopter served as the test vehicle in all study tasks. Author
