Original Abstract

This paper provides information on methods of measuring pilots´ reactions to a changed flight parameter while being tested on simulators. The calculations are made on the grounds of mathematical algorithms modeling human behavior. The prepared mathematical models of behavior are based on transfer functions. The subsequent analysis aimed at acquiring time constants that shall appropriately characterize the state of pilot training is made in the MATLAB simulation environment. Future pilots studying at the University of Defence undergo, always after each period designated to their practical training, several sets of testing measurements. The testing was running on two different simulators, i.e. built on a fixed and movable platform. The obtained results indicate that individual pilots gradually improve their flying skills.
