This paper describes an airline trial of a prototype personal digital assistant (PDA) intended for use by Check Airmen and Flight or Simulator Instructors. The prototype PDA is capable of electronically recording, storing, and transmitting data in both a simulator and an aircraft across a range of pilot proficiency assessment categories. The background to the trial and the authors findings are discussed. Potential future applications and advancements relevant to the ongoing development of PDAs and similar equipment are also outlined. The concluding section discusses important insights and perspectives developed subsequent to the trial.
