Flight Simulator Training : Assessing the Potential

  title={Flight Simulator Training : Assessing the Potential},
  author={Staffan N{\"a}hlinder},
Mental workload is an important concept and has been proven to be a precursor to situation awareness and operative performance. This thesis describes methods to measure mental workload through self-ratings and psychophysiological measurements. Similarities and differences in psychophysiological reactions and rated mental workload between simulated and real flights are described. The consequences of such similarities and differences are discussed and its possible effect on training potential. A… CONTINUE READING
