Abstract : The C-17 aircraft under development will have a worldwide airlift mission in both combat and peacetime environments. With only two pilots in the cockpit, (eliminating the navigator and flight engineers, standards of Military Airlift Command (MAC) operations) design and testing must be logically thought out and executed to enhance mission completion and reduce the pilot's workload. Numerous test facilities are being used to test the state-of-the-art avionics, its interface with the pilots, and the ability of the pilots to accomplish this mission.
