Abstract:

Twenty-four nonpilot, volunteer subjects were tested on three flight tasks while flying four basic aircraft attitude presentations moving horizon, moving airplane, frequency-separated, and kinalog in a light twin-engine aircraft simulator providing three levels of motion cues no motion, standard GAT-2 motion, and washout motion. The flight tasks involved conflicting visual and vestibular cues and included disturbed attitude tracking, command flight path tracking in both pursuit and compensatory modes, and a series of recovery trials from discrete unknown attitudes. To provide a basis for comparison, the present simulator study closely replicated the procedures used in the Roscoe and Williges 1973 flight experiment. Modified author abstract
