Principles of Human-Centered Aviation Automation
- The pilot bears the responsibility for safety, and must remain in command of their flights. The pilot must be actively involved in the flight process. Pilots should be adequately informed by the automation under a wide variety of circumstances.
- Controllers bear the responsibility for traffic separation and safe traffic flow. The controller must remain in command, and must be actively involved in managing the air trafic. Controlers should be adequately informed by the automation under a wide variety of circumstances.
- The automation must assist the both operators in monitoring, therefore the automated systems must be predictable. The automated systems should provide more comprehensive and effective monitoring for the operatprs. The automated systems must moritor the both operators' actions during the whole process of every flight.
