Analyzing Pilot Decision-Making Using Predictive Modeling

 

Speaker:  Somil Shah, FAA, ANG-E272

Due to the increased availability of computational power and large amounts of data, predictive modeling and analytics are becoming increasingly popular in a wide variety of fields. Some predictive modeling techniques are fairly simple, such as linear and logistic regressions, whereas others are fairly complex, such as artificial neural networks. Popular applications of predictive modeling include detecting fraud, diagnosing patients for certain diseases, and predicting traffic and travel times. This presentation discusses one novel application of predictive modeling in the field of commercial aviation safety research. First, two different predictive modeling techniques are presented: artificial neural networks (ANNs) and partition models. The application of the techniques is then demonstrated through a case study related to the determination of stable approach/go-around criteria for transport category aircraft. Predictive modeling is used to analyze human-in-the-loop flight simulator data and questionnaire responses by a number of commercial pilots in order to predict their go- around decisions based on a set of given initial conditions. Through these analyses, it was found that individual pilot personalities significantly affect go-around decision-making. In addition, comparisons are made between modeling methods, and the benefits of using such techniques in modeling human behavior to improve aviation safety is demonstrated.
