SOME MEANS FOR INFORMATIONAL SUPPORT OF THE AIRLINER PILOT
The human factor is responsible for the most flight accidence at take-off and landing phases. For decreasing the psychological load and improving the situational awareness of the pilot the algorithmic and program means of informational support of the crew are offered in the given work. Methodological base of all our innovations is the energy approach to space motion of flying objects.
On the basis of this approach some information messages are generated on the flight deck. Among them there are: i) Index of the engine thrust control functionally similar to various symbolic markers for hand flight path control; ii) the warning panel for notification of atmospheric disturbances; iii) the indicator of a distance or time reserve for decision-making concerning the opportunity of take-off maneuver and subsequent raising a sufficient height above an obstacle ahead; iv) estimation of the brake distance in situation of necessity of emergency braking.
