On the 18th of October, 2016 Future Sky Safety took part in the 6th European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) Conference held in Porto, Portugal.
The conference was designed to be the year’s leading forum for discussion and exchange of information about state-of-the-art research and development activities in Aeronautics and Air Transport.
During the session dedicated to Crew & Cockpit Sara Silvagni, as representative of P6 Human Performance Envelope, presented a paper on the “Development of the human performance envelope concept for cockpit operations”. The paper focused on the preliminary results of the simulations held in Braunschweig, at DLR facilities, with 10 pilots to test the Human Performance Envelope concept and identify potential physiological and behavioural indicators of pilot’s performance decrement.
The presentation raised the interest of the 30 experts attending the session, and resulted to be particularly attractive for the aircraft manufacturers and airlines in the room, wanting to explore the method and measures developed in P6 with their own pilots.
