Effects of Modality on Interrupted Flight Deck Performance : Implications for Data Link

  title={Effects of Modality on Interrupted Flight Deck Performance : Implications for Data Link},
  author={Kara A. Latorella},
Externally-imposed tasks frequently interrupt ongoing task performance in the commercial flight deck. While normally managed without consequence, basic research as well as aviation accident and incident investigations show that interruptions can negatively affect performance and safety. This research investigates the influence of interruption and interrupted task modality on pilot performance in a simulated commercial flight deck. Fourteen current commercial airline pilots performed approach… CONTINUE READING
