  • Display layout in automated flightdecks may change the traditional instrument scan pattern, leading to loss of skills which may be needed upon transitioning to conventional aircraft. (pc38)
  • Data presented in integrated/abstracted/simplified forms may not fully support effective pilot decision making. (pc87)
  • Pilots must use automation in a manner not intended by designers to get desired results or to avoid undesirable consequences, increasing pilot workload and opportunity for error, and may have unanticipated and undesirable side effect. (pc107)
  • Automation design prevents the device from performing a function that seems reasonable to the pilot, requiring the use of alternative strategies which may increase workload and the opportunity for error. (pc109)
  • Automation changes the role of the pilot from that of a controller to that of a supervisor. Because most pilots are not adequately trained for and experienced in this role, errors result. (pc144)
