Abstract:

The influence of practice on carrier landings is discussed in relation to high cumulative workload. The performance criterion was used to identify potential night pilots on the basis of landing proficiency. High and low proficiency pilots also were identified and diagnostic training information provided. A statistically significant increase in night landing performance during high cumulative workload may be due to practice effects as well as workload.
