Workload-oriented Flight Scenario for Evaluation of Pilot-aircraft Interaction

Flight scenarios for assessment of airworthiness and evaluation of aircraft are imperative for the aircraft industry. A flight scenario developing method which takes both aircraft airworthiness and evaluation into consideration was proposed in this paper. Four aspects of techniques, including configuration of dynamical relations among flight environment, weather conditions and aircraft considerations, decomposition of flight crew tasks, mapping of workload functions and factors onto operational tasks, and specification of window events and data items, were provided and integrated based on methodological guide. The method adopted an automated planning and scheduling mechanism which facilitates recurrence of flight conditions and detection of working status of pilot, so that flight scenarios developed could be utilized in various flight tests for fulfillment of flight tasks, implementation of workload measurement, and establishment of minimum flight crew; hence ergonomic evaluation of pilot-aircraft interaction could be carried out which are useful for assessment of airworthiness, analysis of human factors, human-centered design of aircraft, virtual prototyping and engineering of aircraft.
