Abstract:

To evaluate the effects of drugs and environmental stresses on pilot psychomotor performance, an automated system was developed around a Link GAT-1 flight trainer. Performance was electronically scored during 1-hour simulations of cross-country instrument flight, using special purpose analog and digital logic. The sensitivity of this system was assessed by observing the acute effects of three graded doses, 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9 gmkg body weight, of ethyl alcohol on scored performance. Three separate experiments were conducted using a total of 22 male subjects, ages 21 to 29.
