Abstract : The paper describes research performed under HumRRO Task ROTOR, Design of Rotary Wing Training Devices. An analysis was conducted of the necessary and sufficient cues for maintaining vehicle stability in pitch, roll, yaw, altitude, range, and latitude, and a model was developed which expresses the relationship between the cue sources and the information they provide about the vehicle stability in flight. The paper discusses the portion of the analysis which deals with the cue structure of the pilot's visual environment and the development of the model. (Author)
