Abstract : An information model is proposed which may be used under laboratory conditions for research or as a display device on the ground as part of the radiotelemetry system used to transmit the parameters of the aircraft to the flight operations command post. The availability to the flight operations officer of information on the behavior curve of the 'pilot-aircraft' system during the actual flight process makes control more effective and 'visible.' He will be able not only to evaluate piloting quality, but also to send corrective commands to the pilot in the event of significant deviations in the motion parameters from the expected ones, or in the case of an emergency situation. When remote control is used, an additional control and handling 'team' is formed parallel to the 'pilot-aircraft' control 'team.' It consists of the flight operations officer, the radio control and the telemetry equipment. In this case, the flight operations officer becomes an active operator in the complex system of flight control and guidance. (Author)
