FAA's Human Factors Research and Development Plan: A Cooperative Effort 841470
In 1980 and 1931, the FAA conducted six two-day workshops to provide a forum for aviation professionals and airspace system users to identify and discuss human Factors issues important to aviation. Thirty issues were selected as being particularly important to the promotion of aviation and to aviation safety. Members of SAE's Aerospace and Behavioral Engineering Technology Committee ranked the 30 items according to their importance to civil aviation. This ranked list is now being used as the basis for developing an aviation human factors research program which will be presented to the Administrator of the FAA for review.
