Paper Abstract

In the fall of 2003, a series of flight tests were performed in the Tullahoma, Tennessee area to assess the ability of non-instrument rated helicopter pilots to fly precision routes with the aid of a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver. The navigation performance of pilot subjects was assessed from GPS recordings of the flight trajectory, while pilot behavior was recorded using four video cameras, two of which were attached to a goggle frame worn by the pilot. This paper describes the processing methods developed for these data, and presents some preliminary results.
