Researchers at the University of Michigan are surveying general aviation pilots on their experience with modern Primary Flight Displays (PFDs).
The survey is conducted as part of an FAA-funded project that focuses on the evaluation and certification of modern flight deck displays, according to Principal Investigator Dr. Nadine Sarter, University of Michigan, Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering.
“We are particularly interested in how the amount, location and possible addition of new information (e.g., synthetic vision) of information on Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) affects pilots’ information search and monitoring of aircraft and automation state/performance,” the researchers say on the introduction to the survey.
The findings from this survey will help identify both positive and challenging aspects of PFD designs and may inform improvements of these interfaces, the researchers add.
