Human Factors Research Supporting the Anticipated Release of 14 CFR 25.1302 (2012)


Title: Human Factors Research Supporting the Anticipated Release of 14 CFR 25.1302 (2012)
Author(s): Jennifer Wilson, Greg Harron, Emily Jones, Bob Hoffa, & Beth Lyall
Abstract:

The proposed regulation FAA 14 CFR 25.1302 is a general applicability FAA regulation that includes explicit requirements for design attributes related to avoiding and managing flight crew error. While FAA 14 CFR 25.1523 and corresponding Appendix D have addressed some related design attributes, this proposed FAA regulation represents a much more global approach to human factors on the flight deck and will require system and equipment designers to consider human error and feedback in their design and testing of flight deck interfaces.

The new proposed regulation is tentatively planned for issuance by the FAA in late 2012 or early 2013. In preparation for the release of the proposed 14 CFR 25.1302 regulation, the FAA has funded this research project to gather information about the state of industry and FAA understanding and practices that may impact the effective implementation and compliance with the proposed 14 CFR 25.1302 regulation.

This report describes research performed that was intended to provide a foundation to support further development of information and other resources that may contribute to the effective implementation of the proposed 14 CFR 25.1302 regulation.
