Abstract:

A pilot factors evaluation of a 2 inch Standby Flight Instrument System has been conducted to determine its acceptability for use in Air Force aircraft. The standby system consists of an attitude indicator, airspeedmach indicator, altimeter, and directional gyro indicator. Ten subject pilots selected from USAFIFC personnel and students attending the USAF Instrument Pilot Instructor School participated in the evaluation. Overall subject pilot performance on the 2 inch display was excellent, however, a higher level of effort and concentration was required to obtain desired performance on the display than the subject pilots normally expended on their primary instrument systems. The attitude indicator, airspeedmach indicator, and altimeter, are acceptable for installation in US Air Force aircraft with only minor cosmetic changes.
