We evaluate a newly developed symbology that provides the pilot predicted and advisory airspeed information. This information is not only based on the current state of the aircraft, but also takes into account the wind field ahead of the aircraft measured by an onboard LIDAR system. Airline pilots flew landing approaches in wind shear scenarios that demanded careful consideration of whether to land on go-aroundin JAXA's full flight simulator. We obtained both subjective evaluations and objective data including flight performance, eye recoder data, electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG), and performance on a simple visual secondary task. The pilots considered all newly proposed systems useful during the landing approach, and reported better performance and lower workload compared to the conventional display, particularly in challenging situations. The objective data supported the subjective evaluation results.
