Abstract

During the period between 2007 to 2017 the number of commercial aircraft equipped with passive sidesticks has increased by over 200%. The location and stationary nature of passive, uncoupled sidesticks may limit the ability of the Pilot Monitoring (PM) to observe flight control inputs by the Pilot Flying (PF) which may affect the monitoring function. This study reviewed 106 accident reports involving hard landings in commercial jet aircraft fitted with both conventional coupled control inceptors (yokes) and passive sidesticks. The study is part of a wider program of research into Loss of Control Inflight (LoC-I) evaluating the effects of active, coupled/de-coupled sidesticks on pilot workload, performance and situation awareness.
