Abstract

Despite the introduction of “glass” interfaces into the cockpit, there has been little change in how information is configured within flight displays. This is particularly true for general aviation. The WrightCAD design is introduced as a novel way to integrate information into a configural primary flight display. The goal of the WrightCAD design is to take advantage of the opportunity for innovation offered by the introduction of the “glass” cockpit while minimizing negative transfer that might result from a radical change in how information is presented to pilots.
