Abstract : A flight test evaluation, under simulated Category III conditions, was conducted on a three-axis attitude indicator. Heading error was presented on the third axis to be used in executing the decrab maneuver. The indicator was installed in a Federal Aviation Administration DC-7 aircraft and flight tests were conducted using four FAA flight test pilots. Data associated with the landing maneuver were collected and compared to similar data obtained from a previous evaluation of a decrab display. (Author)
