ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PILOT RATING AND PILOT DYNAMICS -- 1. AN EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH

A manual control experiment was conducted to study the relationship between pilot tracking behavior and pilot rating. In order to reveal the relationship, the obtained pilot ratings were compared with the estimated pilot describing functions and the variances of the time series data. In the experiment, a second-order stable controlled element and the Cooper-Harper pilot rating scale were employed. It was shown that when the pilot ratings were good, the pilot dynamics was in good agreement with the crossover model, and that, on the other hand, when the pilot ratings were bad, it was better to employ a higher-order lead element in considering a pilot model. Moreover, there proved to be a correlation between the pilot ratings and the variance of the displayed error, and between the pilot ratings and the variance of the numerical differentials of the control output.
