Edwards, R.E., Tolin, P., & Jonsen, G.L. (1982). Pilot Visual Behavior as a Function of Navigation and Flight Control Modes in the Boeing 757/767. In Proceedings of the 26th Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomic Society, 441-445.

  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "Pilot scan patterns varied as a function of flight control condition. In manual flight, the basic 'T' formed the nucleus of the pilots' scan patterns. This was not true, however, in the coupled flight condition. The decrease in attention to the ADI in coupled flight is similar to that reported by Spady (1977) and is consistent with the pilots' changing role from that of active controller to monitor of system performance." (page 445)
