Abstract
A review of human factors in the CF-18 pilot environment was undertaken. Over 300 human factors issues were initially identified from the scientific literature, the 1 Air Division and Fighter Group safety surveys, and discussions with military and civilian flight safety/human factors experts. Eighty-eight (88) of the issues most relevant to CF-18 operations were selected and grouped under five functional, or "Factor", headings: Aircraft, Aircraft Operations, Training, Squadron Personnel, and Organizational. Issues were evaluated using a questionnaire and interview format. One hundred and sixty-one (161) active CF-18 pilots took part in the survey. They were asked to assess, from a squadron perspective, the current effect of each issue on two parameters: flight safety and operational effectiveness. Each issue was rated on a scale ranging from very beneficial to very detrimental. Ratings were analysed using the non-parametric procedure of dual scaling. TRUNCATED
