Public-Sector Aviation Issues. Graduate Research Award Papers 1993-1994

The seven papers in this issue are reports on research topics chosen by graduate students selected for awards from a nationwide competition under the eighth (1990-1991) Graduate Research Award Program on Public-Sector Aviation Issues. This program is sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration and administered by the Transportation Research Board (TRB). Its purpose is to stimulate thought, discussion, and research by those who may become managers and policy makers in aviation. The papers were presented at the 74th TRB Annual Meeting in January 1995. Specific topics addressed include: advanced avionics to improve air traffic system capacity; coordination and communication among aircrew, air traffic control, and maintenance personnel; pilot disconnect of flight management systems in glass cockpits; cost/quality trade-offs in the departure process; deregulation’s effect on investment and production strategies; aircrew manual skills in automated and conventional flight decks; and gender and cockpit design.
