Abstract:

The paper presents baseline data concerning aviator performance and aircraft state variables during local area, low level and nap-of-the-earth flights. Further, information is provided concerning differences in aviator control inputs per unit of time across the three profiles. From the data, it is evident that NOE flight places more demands on both crews and aircraft than the other two types of flight.
