This paper summarizes the results from a usability test of two prototype Electronic Flight Data Interfaces (EFDIs) for Airport Traffic Control Towers (ATCTs). We conducted a part-task simulation of airport surface operations, including local and ground controller positions, and assessed participant performance and feedback. We present the usability test procedure and results of subjective and objective measures. We also provide recommendations for improving the EFDIs.
