Manual Operations of 4th Generation Airlines

Manual Operations of 4th Generation Airliners

Despite the substantial and proven safety benefits of automation systems in 3rd and 4th generation aircraft, evidence indicates that when faced with unexpected and challenging situations, pilots sometimes have difficulties in quickly responding to situations which require a rapid transition in their activity from monitors of very reliable systems, to active and authoritative decision-makers exercising manual control of the aircraft. Man4Gen intends to address aspects of this problem to improve the safety of airline operations of modern aircraft.

IDT is one of the participants of the Man4Gen initiative, a project funded by the European Commission.
