PILOT PERFORMANCE ON NEW ATM OPERATIONS: MAINTAINING IN-TRAIL SEPARATION AND ARRIVAL SEQUENCING
Cockpit Display of Traffic Information (CDTI) may enable new Air Traffic Management (ATM) operations. However, CDTI is not the only source of traffic information in the cockpit: ATM procedures may provide information, implicitly and explicitly, about other aircraft. An experiment investigates pilot ability to perform two new ATM operations - maintaining in-trail separation from another aircraft and sequencing into an arrival stream. In the experiment, pilots were provided different amounts of information from displays and procedures. The results are described.
