Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine and compare a more radical design of instrument approach plates with a more traditional representation. Thirty subjects, 25 males and 5 females, were divided into two groups of fifteen for assignment to the map frame of reference condition fixed or rotating maps. Each subject flew eight landing approaches, four with the two-dimensional display and four with the three-dimensional display. Subjects were given two primary tasks fly the aircraft to minimize flight path deviations, and answer questions related to measures of situations awareness.
