FLIGHT TESTS OF PILOTAGE ERROR IN AREA NAVIGATION WITH VERTICAL GUIDANCE: EFFECTS OF NAVIGATION PROCEDURAL COMPLEXITY. PHASE 4
Pilotage error resulting from a simplified three-dimensional area navigation procedure was measured during 32 hooded instrument flights in a Beechcraft Twin Bonanza. These empirical observations were compared statistically both with corresponding values of pilotage error previously reported in a study using Standard Procedures (Report FAA-RD-72-126) and with corresponding values previously assumed in FAA AC 90-45 and RTCA DO-152. Other experimental variables were pilot experience level and vertical display type. The major task variable was angle of climb or descent. Pilot performance measures were vertical and horizontal steering, airspeed control, and procedural errors.
