Piloted Simulation Based Assessment of Simplified Vehicle Operations for Urban Air Mobility

The Simplified Vehicle Operations paradigm seeks to achieve significant reductions in pilot workload and training requirements through the holistic design of flight control laws, control inceptors, and cockpit displays. This talk investigates the paradigm in the context of vertical takeoff and landing urban air mobility flight vehicle concepts using piloted flight simulations. Two inceptor designs, differing in the physical design of the inceptors and in the inceptor-to-command mappings, are evaluated using two flight simulators and study participants with varying prior aviation experience.
