Sample Expert Survey - page 1 of 15

Following is the expert survey we used in our study of flightdeck automation (see the Expert Survey Report).


Note: Please do not fill it out and send it to us -- the survey has been completed!


Go to page:   1  . 2  . 3  . 4  . 5  . 6  . 7  . 8  . 9  . 10  . 11  . 12  . 13  . 14  . 15

Instructions:

For each of the following problems/concerns, mark the degree to which you agree that it is a problem and how critical to flight safety you believe it to be, and then indicate the type of information upon which you based your ratings.


Pilots are out of the control loop and peripheral to the actual operation of the aircraft and therefore not prepared to assume control when necessary. (pc2)

Criticality results
When automation functions reliably, as it does most of the time, it can induce pilots to be less alert in monitoring its behavior, and less prepared to take immediate action when needed. (pc3)

Pilots are required to monitor automation for long periods of time, a task for which they are perceptually and cognitively ill suited, and monitoring errors are likely. (pc5)
