Assessment of a General Aviation Pilot Assisting System Influence on the Piloting Performance and Safety of Inexperienced Pilots
The main goal of the present work was to assess and test a pilot assisting technique for light aircraft with inexperienced volunteers. The pilot assisting technique consisted of modified PID controllers with gain scheduling, with features to maintain the pilot authority and flight safety, simplifying the piloting. After the gain adjustment, the controlled model (pilot assistance) was adapted into a simulation platform of the ACS-100 Sora aircraft at CEA-UFMG and volunteers were invited to simulate a flight in a predefined trajectory. It was possible to conclude that inexperienced volunteers were able to improve significantly on this task.
