Abstract : Pilotage errors in area navigation terminal operations were measured in flight and in a flight simulation laboratory. Experimental display variables included scale factor of course deviation indications, whether course deviation is presented in linear or angular fashion, and whether or not either actual or relative heading is presented integrally with course deviation. The major task variable was the angle between successive route segments. (Author)
