Abstract : The Air Force installed a Fuel Savings Advisory System (FSAS) in three C-141 aircraft and performed an operational test and evaluation. At the request of the USAF Airlift Center, observers from the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine evaluated human-engineering, workload, and fatigue aspects of FSAS during three long-duration missions. Pilot's subjective fatigue/workload reports, interviews with crewman, and human-engineering analyses indicated that the FSAS was satisfactory for use in MAC airlift operations. Human-engineering solutions are provided, also suggestions for future improvement of the FSAS. (Author)
