Abstract : This paper is intended to set forth generalized principles on a broad subject which lies at the heart of both flying qualities and human factors research, development, test, and evaluation. These generalizations are the result of the author's study of the flying qualities, pilot workload, and pilot performance literature. They are submitted to the participants of the Workshop on Flight Testing to Identify Pilot Workload and Pilot Dynamics to stimulate further discourse on the application of these principles to particular experimental circumstances and to encourage the readers to recognize the common threads linking the fields of aircraft flying qualities and human factors.
