This book was released on 1970 with total page 43 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Three displays were evaluated on a piloted simulator, each of which provided information which could be used in thrust management. The three displays were (1) rate of change of speed, (2) potential flight-path angle, and (3) potential rate of climb. Results are presented in the form of time histories, histograms, and pilot comments. The results include comparisons of flight-path and speed control and throttle activity with and without each display and pilot comments.
