Improving Aviation Safety Through Training & Design

The purpose of this research is to improve pilot preparedness in the cockpit. The proposed work builds on prior work assessing current problems with automated systems on the flight deck and developing potential solutions to problems generated by these new systems. It also builds on a recent industry survey conducted by Research Integrations, Incorporated and George Mason University. The results suggest that there are a number of urgent questions for which the aviation industry does not have answers and a number of avenues for which research would be useful and important.
