Abstract:

A conceptual analysis and review of human factors problems in piloting VTOL aircraft including helicopters is presented. VTOL mission and flight requirements are contrasted with those of CTOLs. Deficiencies in present VTOL flight instrumentation are summarized. An experimental approach that is based on established display principles and emphasizes dynamically predictive skeletal,perspective, vertical and horizontal situation displays is presented.
