Abstract : These reports describe the data collection and analysis efforts performed by the Civil Aeromedical Institute 5 Human Factors Research Laboratory to assist the Office of Aviation System Standards (AVN) in the human factors evaluation of the Operational Demonstration (Ops Demo) candidate flight inspection aircraft (FIA). Although there was not sufficient time to conduct an exhaustive human factors evaluation of the Ops Demo FIA, several efforts were undertaken to assist in the determination of the suitability of the proposed aircraft for integration of flight inspection equipment and performance of the flight inspection mission. These efforts included an evaluation of flight inspection pilot and technician preferences for certain aircraft characteristics, an evaluation of aircraft cabin noise levels, an anthropometric familiarization for flight inspection pilots and technicians participating in the Ops Demo, and an evaluation of the proposed flight inspection workstation design for the medium-size, medium-range (MSR) aircraft.
