Unpredictable training better prepares pilots for emergencies
When an emergency suddenly occurs during flight, it can be very difficult for pilots to respond correctly. This is why aviation authorities have ruled that the annual training that pilots receive should now include a specific focus on managing startle and surprise. Researcher Annemarie Landman used flight simulators to explore how such training should be realized. On 4 September, she will defend her thesis on the subject of ‘startle and surprise’, a joint project of the TU Delft and TNO. This will be followed by a symposium at TNO Soesterberg on 26 September. One of Landman's key conclusions is that simulator training should be made more unpredictable and varied.
