Abstract:

This report presents an evaluation of the effectiveness of predictor displays as training aids in carrier landing. An experiment was performed in which two predictor displays were compared with a control condition, where the principal measure was total approaches necessary to reach criterion performance. Also evaluated were three presentation modes for the predictor displays. The experiment was carried out on a low-cost device which simulated an A-7 aircraft. Analysis of the data indicated no significant differences between groups although one predictor display consistently yielded better performance than the other conditions. Author
