Abstract : The purpose of this handbook is to provide human engineering guidelines for the design of flight simulator instructor/operator stations (IOSs). Guidelines are included for (a) electronic displays, (b) manual controls, (c) control placement, (d) workstation design, and (e) workstation seating. Human engineering design standards, scientific literature surveys, and empirical human factors investigations constituted the primary sources from which the guidelines were established. The specific sources from which each guideline was extracted, the source dates of publication, and the source design specifications are provided for each of the IOS design recommendations in the handbook. The human body dimensions and arm reach distances of representative groups of both male and female operators are also included in the handbook. Finally, an appendix is provided containing a comprehensive listing of published IOS design investigations.
