Abstract : Competency was evaluated at the completion of training through three separate flight checks assessing pilot proficiency of manually controlling aircraft equipped with and without a stability augmentation system. Results indicated that pilot competency was not adversely affected by training received in an aircraft equipped with such a device and even contributed to cross country proficiency by relieving pilot workloads.
