AUTOMATION IN AVIATION: A HUMAN FACTORS PERSPECTIVE. IN: HANDBOOK OF AVIATION HUMAN FACTORS

Aircraft automation is part of a vast movement to improve and control performance and risks in so-called advanced societies. The paper first describes the current status of aircraft automation, what end user model triggered the present choice, how far can the results be considered a success by the aviation technical community, and how any existing drawbacks are explained and controlled. Next, a brief description is provided of automation drawbacks, and that is followed by a presentation of a causal model based on the mismatch of the pilot's model between industry and academia. The final section focuses on solutions suggested by the theorists to improve the human-machine interface or to assist industry in improving jobs. The relevance, feasibility, and limitations of these suggestions are also considered.
