Motion Relationships in Aircraft Attitude and Guidance Displays: A Flight Experiment.

Sixteen nonpilot Naval ROTC students were tested on tasks involving conflicting visual and vestibular cues while flying with each of four basic aircraft attitude presentations moving horizon, moving airplane, frequency-separated, and kinalog in a Beechcraft C-45H airplane. Flight-director versions of each display presenting either compensatory or pursuit steering guidance were also compared on a command flight path tracking task involving random heading changes. For all attitude presentations, pursuit tracking was superior to compensatory tracking, and the order of merit of the four attitude presentations in flight casts doubt upon the validity of previous simulator experiments.
