Roscoe, A.H. (April, 1992). Workload in the Glass Cockpit. Flight Safety Digest, 1-8.

  1.  
  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "In comparing workload between old and new aircraft types, it is worth noting the substantial anecdotal evidence from first officers reconverting to the 737 after being promoted to the left seat. (One-on-one interviews with 12 pilots provided more detailed evidence.) They report having more difficulty with instrument scan, speed control and situational awareness, and that their overall workload is much greater." (page 3)
    Issue: situation awareness may be reduced (Issue #114) See Issue details
    Strength: +1
    Aircraft: B767
    Equipment: automation

  6. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "In comparing workload between old and new aircraft types, it is worth noting the substantial anecdotal evidence from first officers reconverting to the 737[-200] after being promoted to the left seat. (One-on-one interviews with 12 pilots provided more detailed evidence.) They report having more difficulty with instrument scan, speed control and situational awareness, and that their overall workload is much greater." (page 3)
    Issue: automation may adversely affect pilot workload (Issue #79) See Issue details
    Strength: -1
    Aircraft: B767
    Equipment: automation

  8. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "Results from a total of 73 flight sectors strongly supported numerous anecdotal reports from company pilots that levels of workload in the 767 are almost always noticeably lower than in the 737[-200]." (page 2)
    Issue: automation may adversely affect pilot workload (Issue #79) See Issue details
    Strength: -1
    Aircraft: B767
    Equipment: automation
