It could be argued that the success of the Wright brothers later that same year was due to their methodical approach to all of the challenges associated with heavier than air flight. In particular, they understood that an effective human–machine interface (that is, the control system) and appropriate training (that is, extensive experience piloting kites and gliders) was an essential complement to innovations 4 Advances in Aviation Psychology with respect to the development of engines and wings.

3. Potentially correct and safe commands are given, but at the wrong time (too early, too late, or in the wrong sequence). For example, TCAS provides a resolution advisory for the pilot to pull up too late to avoid a collision. 4. A required control command is stopped too soon or continued too long. For example, the pilot ascends as directed by a TCAS resolution advisory but does not level off at the required altitude. Although classic control theory and control commands are emphasized here, the model is more general in terms of accounting for other types of controls on behavior than just a physical or human controller in a feedback loop.

37). The wisdom of providing for human astronaut control was verified when on the first US orbital flight, John Glenn’s Mercury spacecraft developed a malfunctioning thruster and he was able to use the manual control to compensate (Mindell, 2008). Debates regarding the best role allocation between humans and machines have not abated to this date (for example, Barnes & Jentsch, 2010; Billings, 1991; Parasuraman & Byrne, 2003; Tsang & Vidulich, 1989) and the issues have come to the forefront of aviation psychology with new challenges posed by the control of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the implementation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).
