This paper describes a task analysis of two crew operations in the flight deck in Part 121 Operations from gate to gate on a cross country flight. In addition, several non-normal scenarios wereanalyzed. Literature and operations materials werecombined to develop the task lists. A primary source for this study is“An Exploration of Function Analysis and Function Allocation in the Commercial Flight Domain” by McGuire, et. al. (1991). Once the tasks wereidentified, they wereset to an actually flight time schedule. Each task wasassigned to either the Pilot Flying(PF) or the Pilot Monitoring (PM) in today’s operations. Additionally, tasks werecategorized as: discrete or continuous; heads up or heads down; simultaneous with other tasks or performed serially; and whether any tasks are redundant.
