Aircraft Certification Job Aid for Flight Deck Human Factors

Funding Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Project Partners: Oregon State University (OSU) and User Interaction Research and Design, Inc.
Objective: To determine how existing human performance data can be systematically applied to aircraft certification, and to develop, demonstrate, and test tools to assist aircraft certification personnel (and design personnel) with human factors design assessments. More details…

Issues and Evidence for Flight Deck Automation

Funding Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Objective: To update and maintain a database and website of issues related to the design, use, and training of flight deck automation as identified in aviation incidents, accidents, and experimental studies. More details…

Human Factors Support of the Aviation Safety Reporting System

Funding Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
Project Partners: Booz Allen Hamilton
Objective: To conduct human factors research on topics identified through the Aviation Safety Reporting System and to provide human factors support in developing improvements to the system. More details…

Mixed-Fleet Flying

Funding Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Project Partners: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a major airline, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, and University of Illinois (UI)
Objective: To assess the operational and safety consequences of mixed-fleet flying of two advanced automation airplanes. More details…

NEXCOM (Next Generation Air/Ground Communications)

Funding Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Project Partners: User Interaction Research and Design, Inc. and Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Objective: To mitigate risks associated with human factors in the first developmental segment of the Next Generation Air/Ground Communications (NEXCOM) system development. More details…

Using Simulation To Identify And Measure Pilot Skills For Automated Aircraft

Funding Agency: Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Project Partners: George Mason University (GMU), University of Central Florida (UCF), and Alaska Airlines
Objective: To conduct research on the use of full-flight aircraft simulator data for identifying and measuring pilot skills associated with using flight deck automation. Additionally, this project provides the means for facilitating information exchange and collaborative research by the FAA Automation Skills Research Team. More details…

Automobile Ergonomics Evaluation

Customer: Automotive Marketing Consultants, Inc (AMCI). AMCI provides the industry standard for automotive testing and certification of advertising claims.

ISAP Conference Proceedings CD-ROM

Customer: International Symposium for Aviation Psychology (ISAP)
Objective: To design and develop the CD-ROM version of the conference proceedings for the 2001 International Symposium for Aviation Psychology. More details…

Automation Training for Regional and Commuter Air Carriers

Funding Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
Project Partners: San Francisco State University (SFSU)
Objective: To define the significant issues associated with training regional and commuter air carrier pilots for flight deck automation use and to develop pilot training objectives to be used in regional and commuter air carrier training operations. More details…

Approaches To Training For Automated Aircraft

Funding Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Project Partners: Oregon State University (OSU)
Objective: To review current training practices for pilots who fly automated aircraft. Instructors and training management at all major US airlines and two manufacturers were interviewed for their views on training methods that have been effective, those that have not been effective, and the challenges that still need to be met for this type of training. More details…
