Visual and Auditory Information Processing Aspects of the Acquisition of Flying Skill.
Haygood, Robert C.; And Others
The result of a number of experiemental studies of human auditory and visual information processing behavior and their possible relationship to the student pilot's acquisition of flying skill were explored in terms of a conceptual model developed for this study. The results were interpreted in terms of the potential interfering effects of the intake of and response to information processed during flying tasks and in terms of the student pilot's nonoptimal information processing strategies during his acquisition of flying skill. It was concluded that the experimental procedures employed could be adapted sucessfully for research in the area and that the relationships found between information procesing and flying skill warranted their further study.
