"... in the late 1980s, aircrafts became 'fly-by-wire' aircrafts, which means that pilots modify the configuration of the aircraft via electrical and hydraulic devices.

Dr Besnard said: "At the same time, onboard computers started to manage a number of functions and modes aiming at increasing safety and reducing workload. Unfortunately, the workload is still very high and the complexity of the cockpit has dramatically increased." [min markering, JS.]

Mer information är inte alltid bättre:
"During emergencies, pilots are overloaded with technical information which they are unable to process quickly enough. This could mean that wrong decisions are made at crucial moments – and these cannot be reversed. (...)

Although the air accident rate has been constantly decreasing over the last decades, many modern aircraft have computerised controls systems which are so complex that they even over-tax the mental capabilities of fully-trained pilots, say the researchers."

En spännande kognitionsforskare som håller på med det här är Ed Hutchins i San Diego.

En rolig uppsats heter "How a cockpit remembers its speeds" och har hamnat här (kanske under hans skandinavienbesök för ett par år sen):

Väl värd att läsa.
