This paper provides a synthesis of the empirical studies to date that have investigated weather-related pilot decision making. Of particular interest is how new cockpit technologies such as synthetic vision systems and graphical weather information systems interact with flight experience, risk perception, risk-taking tendencies and selfconfidence in affecting pilots’ decision to continue flight into adverse weather. A conceptual framework for integrating and interpreting the results of these various studies is also be proposed.
