Use of Pitch and Heave Motion Cues in a Pitch Control Task
During pitch rotation of the aircraft, a pilot, seated in front of the aircraft center of gravity, is subjected to rotational pitch and vertical heave motion. The heave motion is a combination of theExpand

Manual Control Adaptation to Changing Vehicle Dynamics in Roll-Pitch Control Tasks
This paper investigates how pilot control behavior adapts to time-varying vehicle dynamics in a roll–pitch control task. Nine general aviation pilots performed eight experimental conditions in whichExpand

Effects of Heave Washout Settings in Aircraft Pitch Disturbance Rejection
In most moving-base flight simulators, the simulated aircraft motion needs to be filtered with motion washout filters to keep the simulator within its limited motion envelope. Translational motion inExpand
