Evidence for an Issue 5 pieces of evidence for this issue.

commercial incentives may dominate (Issue #127) - The fundamental reasons for the increasing use of automation may be to decrease the cost of flight operations. If these considerations receive excessive emphasis in the aircraft design process, safety may be compromised.

  8. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Survey
    Evidence: Statement 15: "In the selection of automation, economics and design are given higher priority than pilot requirements." On the scale in which 1= Strongly Disagree, 25=Disagree, 50=Neither agree nor disagree, 75=Agree, and 100=Strongly Agree, the mean pilot response was 55 and the standard deviation was 20. The minimum response was 25 and the maximum was 100. (page 45, 54)
