Synopsis: This is "a summary of a two year study that investigated the impact of automation in corporate aviation cockpits. ... The approach followed in this study emulated previous work in the air carrier environment (e.g., Wiener, 1989). In general the study used three data collection techniques to cover all aspects of automation and corporate cockpits. They were: Questionnaires, Flight observations, Simulator observations" "Two workshops were held, one near the end of each year in the project. The purpose of the workshops were to provide the investigators a 'reality check' of their conclusions by the pilots who deal with the systems every day." ...
