Man4Gen

Manual Operation for 4th Generation Airliners

Manual Operation for 4th Generation Airliners

The project will identify current deficiencies of situational awareness and manual control of modern flight decks, and impact the design of procedures, training and cockpit design in the aerospace industry. Procedures will be developed to help the pilot identify not only the fault, but where the airplane is with respect to its operational envelope and limits. By empowering the pilot to utilize his/her skills more effectively, identifying how to create conditions that increase the likelihood of success, and developing guidelines to train fundamental skills to deal with unexpected events, Man4Gen will directly impact the reduction of fatal accidents.
