Research into pilot cognition has shown that existing flight deck interfaces can hamper optimal performance on a number of important tasks. The goal of this panel is to describe recent efforts to understand how future flight decks might be designed, and how redesigns affect pilot training and performance. Examples and new experimental results will be provided from ongoing research and development efforts.
