A decision support tool developed by the Institute of Aerospace Technologies as part of the ACROSS research project has just completed two weeks of pilot evaluations at the flight simulation facilities of the Dutch national aerospace research laboratory (NLR). The tool was evaluated by 10 crews of commercial airline pilots with a wide range of flying experience. The evaluations were carried out on the NLR GRACE full-flight simulator after several months of collaborative integration, validation and testing by members of staff of the IAT and NLR. The results of these evaluations are now being analysed by the IAT and the conclusions will be published as part of the final assessment report which will be completed later on this year.
