The purpose of this symposium is to identify and address common human factors issues with new and emerging avionics technologies, share lessons learned, and to provide an understanding of how the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) applies human factors research to enhance aviation safety. Flight deck technologies have been changing at a rapid pace, requiring updates to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, guidance, and policy. This symposium will focus on flight deck technologies that will assist in NextGen implementation by improving flight crew awareness through Cockpit Displays of Traffic Information (CDTI), Airport Moving Maps, Primary Flight Displays (PFDs), and portable technologies. The results of this human factors research helps enable the FAA Office of Aviation Safety to develop and update establish evaluation criteria, operational procedures, and training recommendations.
