Abstract

One of the major roles of the flight supervisory control during flight training is that a trainee is guided to stay within acceptable range of flight performance parameters. Under the supervisory control during flight training, however, a trainee may perceive psychological stress. Literature suggests that when pilots are monitored by flight supervisor during flight training, their perception of psychological stress may increase and thus, result in increasing flight performance. This work proposes to examine whether the presence of flight supervisors has an effect on trainee’s performance. This study will further find the number of flight supervisors needed for pilot flight training. An empirical result of the present research study is expected to provide practical implications as to how differently trainees will perform under the supervision of single supervisor versus multiple supervisors. The present work will statistically verify one research hypotheses. The hypothesis is that flight trainee’s performance would increase under the condition of multiple supervisors compared with single supervisor. Independent variables include the presence of supervisor (1 vs. 3) and scenario order presented with participants. Dependent variables include three types of flight performance (performance on skill, scanning, and task load). A within-subject two-way ANOVA with counterbalancing mixed design will be conducted to statistically verify the research hypothesis. A sample size of this research study is 32 participants.

An Examination of the Effect of Multiple Supervisors on Flight Trainees' Performance
