MODELS OF PILOT BEHAVIOR AND THEIR USE TO EVALUATE THE STATE OF PILOT TRAINING
Miroslav Jirgl – Rudolf Jalovecky – Zdenek Bradac
This article discusses the possibilities of obtaining new information related to human behavior, namely the changes or progressive development of pilots' abilities during training. The main assumption is that a pilot's ability can be evaluated based on a corresponding behavioral model whose parameters are estimated using mathematical identification procedures. The mean values of the identified parameters are obtained via statistical methods. These parameters are then monitored and their changes evaluated. In this context, the paper introduces and examines relevant mathematical models of human (pilot) behavior, the pilot-aircraft interaction, and an example of the mathematical analysis.
