Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess the usefulness of automation techniques and devices developed for the purpose of providing pilots with the capability to obtain preflight weather briefings without the aid of a flight service station specialist. Both live and canned weather data were employed during the conduct of the study to ascertain the validity of the basic concepts and to define improvements thereto. The data elicited from the activities, thus far, indicates that pilot self-briefing is a feasible approach which portends delivery of quality weather briefings with a concomitant cost reduction when compared to the cost of todays and any future labor intensive briefing system. This is a technical report containing information on design of the experiment data collected, statistical analyses of results, and a summary narrative, conclusions and recommendations.
