Human-in-the-Loop Method to Test the Effectiveness of Training Pilot Responses to Unexpected Events. Task 4: Training Development Plan

This report provides a primer as to how to conduct human-in-the-loop (HITL) research in which pilots’ responses to unexpected events can be explored for potential mitigations through training. The results of this effort conclude the following findings and recommendations: Identification of key independent and dependent variables for assessing pilot responses during unexpected events; recommendations on types of training interventions and measurable skills and behaviors that pilots may exhibit during unexpected events; recommendations for HITL scenario selection criteria and candidate scenario examples; recommendations for conducting a HITL; and a recommended performance assessment method for measuring pilots’ behaviors during unexpected events. Research results can ultimately lead to testing and validation to inform Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personnel who develop evaluation criteria for pilot tasks, skills, knowledge, and proficiency and incorporate this information into human factors related documentation.
