During ISAP 2011, we presented an early work about the theoretical background for the design of an anticipation support for civilian pilots. Two years later, the ASAP (Anticipation Support for Aeronautical Planning) project has grown and a preliminary version of our anticipation support has been implemented. Following a cognitive engineering approach, users were involved at each step of the design. An intermediate study allowed refining the information processing in order to better fit the actual need. On the basis of interviews and activity analysis, functionalities were implemented aiming at improving anticipation skills. In the context of a flight simulator and along two scenarios using the ASAP interface pilots are asked to act the way they are used to. In this paper evaluated functionalities as well as experimental protocol are detailed. Lessons learned are presented and discussed. Conclusions are drawn for future developments.
