PILOTAGE ERROR AND RESIDUAL ATTENTION: THE EVALUATION OF A PERFORMANCE CONTROL SYSTEM IN AIRBORNE AREA NAVIGATION

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: In 1969, with the publication of an Advisory Circular titled “Approval of Area Navigation Systems for Use in the U. S. National Airspace System,” the Federal Aviation Administration implemented an empirically quantitative basis for determining the configuration of airways in the United States. The Advisory Circular also established procedures whereby an equipment manufacturer may demonstrate his system’s compliance with area navigation accuracy requirements, taking into account the errors made by pilots, that will assure an acceptably high probability that an airplane will fly within its assigned airspace (Roscoe, et al., 1969).
