Flight deck automation and task management (1998)


Title: Flight deck automation and task management (1998)
Author(s): Ken Funk, Candy Suroteguh, Jennifer Wilson, and Beth Lyall
Abstract: The last two decades have brought significant change to the commercial transport aircraft flight deck. Complex functions once performed by human pilots are now routinely performed by automated systems. Autoflight systems control aircraft altitude, heading, and speed as selected by the pilots. Flight management systems (FMSs) allow the human flightcrew to pre-program flight paths, complete with altitude and speed restrictions, then couple through the autoflight systems to fly those paths accurately and economically.
