Abstract:

The goal of airlines is to reduce to an absolute minimum the amount of time spent in aircraft for training. Simulators are cheaper and safer to operate than aircraft, although some maneuvers still must be learned in actual flight. Some aspects of aircraft control depend upon an exterior view from the aircraft of the outside visual world, but providing good specifications for just how to simulate the external visual world is far from simple. There is currently no solid scientific basis for cataloging visual cues with respect to their importance in aircraft control. The report constitutes a summary of the information gathered by the Working Group to remedy this situation and recommendations arising out of its deliberations.
