Jet single-pilot simulation study scenario overviews, task analyses, and concurrent task timelines  (2013)
Abstract Header
In a recently completed human-in-the-loop simulation study, the workload management strategies, techniques, and automation use of single-pilots flying an entry-level jet flight training device (i.e., 'simulator') were examined (Burian, et al., 2013). Prior to data collection, we completed an analysis of the tasks to be performed by participants as prescribed by the flight scenarios we developed. Since many tasks could be completed in different ways and the timing of various actions during the flights could vary from one pilot to the next, we completed our task analysis based on the approach to the flights and tasks taken by a mentor pilot subject matter expert (SME) who is type-rated in our study aircraft - a Cessna Citation Mustang. Also with the help of the pilot SME, we developed timelines that depicted how tasks identified through the task analyses would be completed concurrently over the course of a flight according to how the SME would have flown the scenarios. The task analyses and concurrent task timelines we developed are included in this report as well as the high level overviews of the experimental scenarios upon which they are based.
