Abstract : The report contains a summary of two display research efforts. One program is concerned with presentation of information to the pilot while the transition from instrument (IFR) to visual (VFR) flight conditions is made during the final segment of the approach just prior to touchdown. The second program deals with presentation of information to the pilot during the approach and landing when weather conditions preclude visual contact with the runway. The aims of both efforts are (1) identification of major display problems, and (2) recommendations for action by which problem solutions can be obtained. (Author)
