Abstract : The initial validation of the concept of the 'Functional Age Profile' for aviators is reported. This concept is based on objective performance parameters assessed by a computer-based information processing test battery. Preliminary results suggest that the 'Functional Age Profile' may be an indicator of attentional resource capacity in flight simulator performance. (Author)
