Although flight deck automation has been well received by pilots and by the aviation industry, many automation human factors issues have been raised. In this study, we surveyed a wide variety of sources, including pilots and other aviation experts; accident reports; incident reports; documentation on other studies of incident reports; and documentation on experiments, surveys, and other studies to identify and compile evidence related to 92 flight deck automation issues. We created a World Wide Web site (http://flightdeck.ie.orst.edu/) to make this information available to the aviation research, development, manufacturing, operational, and regulatory communities.
