Abstract
`Pathway-in-the-sky'' flight display formats appear to offer exceptional path-control precision for future transport operational environments requiring complex-path approaches. With the conversion from the present instrument landing system (ILS) to the microwave landing system (MLS) within the National Airspace System, complex-path approaches could be used for commercial transport operations to address airport capacity issues. Therefore, the application of `pathway-in-the-sky'' formats to commercial transport operations is being evaluated at various flight display research laboratories. The introduction of true depth cues via stereopsis techniques offers a means of further enhancing these displays. The paper describes research conducted to determine the effectiveness of two candidate pathway formats for landing approach and to investigate the effect of their presentation in stereo versus nonstereo display environments. A real-time piloted simulation experiment comparing performance across these factors in a transport landing-approach task is discussed.
