Georgia Tech is seeking pilots to volunteer for a study examining
how meteorological information displays affect pilot weather
decision-making. Licensed pilots and currently enrolled student
pilots who are at least 18 years of age and live in the US are
eligible to participate.
As you know, adverse weather conditions in aviation can lead to
delays, deviations, and even accidents. As a result, the Georgia
Institute of Technology is conducting a study on how different
weather display technology influences pilot decision-making.
As a participant in this study, you will be asked to complete an
online demographics questionnaire regarding your flight experience,
ratings, and other items. Following the demographic questionnaire,
the participant pilots will be asked to evaluate various weather
scenarios. The study will take roughly 1-hours to complete, and the
participants will have to evaluate 30 weather situations. We hope
that you will consider participating and assisting us in learning
more about weather display technology. Participation will assist us
in learning more about weather display technologies with the goal of
improving aviation safety. The supported internet browsers are
Chrome 4.0 or higher, and Firefox 4.0 or higher. In addition,
JavaScript must be enabled. We recommend using a laptop or a
desktop. If you work at a secure government facility, you may need
to use a personal device due to security constraints.
