Abstract:

Eight instrument rated pilots with flying experience ranging from 600 to 12,271 hours each flew 10 simulated ILS instrument approaches in a single engine, general aviation aircraft equipped with a primary flight display arranged in a conventional T configuration. Continuous glide slope and localizer tracking performance was recorded during each approach. Approaches were flown consecutively at approximately 10-minute intervals, with a one-minute in-flight rest period prior to each approach.
