Abstract : A flight test program incorporating a Bendix Moving Map Display in a Cessna 02A aircraft was accomplished to take a preliminary look at the use of the display in a simple flying task to determine if further exploration in more complex tasks such as forward air controller missions would be warranted. Twelve 02A pilots flew three prescribed flight paths using one of these three different navigation aids on each path: hand-held 1:50,000 map; 1:50,000 map strip in the display; and 1:50,000 photo strip in the display. The opinions of the pilots and a radar plot of the flights were obtained for evaluation. (Author)
