Display on Demand Method Increases Time Spent Looking Outside the Cockpit

Display on Demand Method Increases Time Spent Looking Outside the Cockpit Modern on-board instrumentation can lead to distraction,particularly by absorbing attention inside the cockpit, which reduces airsafety. The display on demand (DoD) method tested here aims to impede thatproblem for glider and visual flight rules (VFR) pilots. In total, 21 studentswere assigned to either an experimental or a control group in a pre- andpost-test design. In the experimental group, the cockpit instruments weredisplayed on the participants’ demand to allow for the orientation ofvisual attention out of the cockpit. Three types of basic exercises were tested.Skills acquisition was measured while evaluating the ability to follow flightindications given by the instructor such as airspeed, and visual attention wasmeasured by an eye tracker.

Abstract

Modern on-board instrumentation can lead to distraction,particularly by absorbing attention inside the cockpit, which reduces airsafety. The display on demand (DoD) method tested here aims to impede thatproblem for glider and visual flight rules (VFR) pilots. In total, 21 studentswere assigned to either an experimental or a control group in a pre- andpost-test design. In the experimental group, the cockpit instruments weredisplayed on the participants’ demand to allow for the orientation ofvisual attention out of the cockpit. Three types of basic exercises were tested.Skills acquisition was measured while evaluating the ability to follow flightindications given by the instructor such as airspeed, and visual attention wasmeasured by an eye tracker. All participants improved their performance aftertraining. Compared with classic training, the DoD method allows participants tospend more time looking outside the cockpit without any impact on the subjectiveworkload. This is a promising method for ab initio flight training.
