Abstract :

The goal of this research is to develop a method that can give an indication of pilot task demand load during approaches. This paper presents the results of a flight simulator experiment that aimed to identify the factors that influence pilot task demand load during an approach with a Boeing 747. Based on the results of this experiment, seven guidelines for the design of approaches are presented. When these guidelines are adhered to, pilot task demand load during the approach will be acceptable. Additionally, a nonlinear Monte Carlo computer simulation, as well as a computer simulation based on a point mass model, is presented. Both computer simulations can predict, for a given approach, whether the seven guidelines with respect to pilot task demand load are adhered to. DOI:10.2514/1.C031269
