The MFD simulates more than 14 aircraft types, including single-engine, multi-engine and turboprop aircraft. The system incorporates dual seating and controls for both the pilot and the co-pilot.
This flexibility will allow us to explore multiple human factor areas including crew coordination and communication, visual signal detection, auditory signal detection, threat detection and response, aeronautical decision making, risk tolerance, risk avoidance, and cultural impacts on crew interactions. These studies may impact the fields of runway incursion avoidance and aviation security.
In addition to human factor research applications, the MFD can be used to create interactive learning for Encore Flight students enrolled in courses such as Advanced Aircraft Systems and Introduction to Human Factors. The MFD may be used to replicate and reconstruct accident scenarios, to demonstrate the operation/failure of systems, and to demonstrate crew interaction principles in a hands-on, immersive environment. In addition, the MFD will be used for community outreach purposes in coordination with the FAA Safety programs.
