Abstract:

The Tactical Air Command TAC and Aerospace Defense Command ADC have requested USAF Instrument Flight Center USAFIFC include Head-Up Display HUD information in Air Force Manual 51-37. The TAC and ADC requests are of extreme importance since HUD systems are presently installed in the A-7D, A-10, F-15, and F-111D aircraft and there is an expanding emphasis toward installing HUD systems in future aircraft. The role of HUD in an instrument environment must be defined to ensure its optimum operational utilization during various instrument flight regimes. A pilot factors survey was conducted to determine 1 The present use of HUDs during instrument flight by USAF pilots and 2 Problems encountered by USAF pilots while using HUDs during instrument flight.
