University of Birmingham flight safety researchers seek volunteers

Flight safety researchers at the University of Birmingham are looking for low-houred student pilots to participate in simulator-based sessions.

As part of a series of experiments “designed to inform future aircraft design and future pilot education and training,” researchers are looking to recruit pilot volunteers aged 18 to 25.  Candidates must have also between five and 50 hours of Single Engine Piston (SEP) time.

The sessions will last no longer than two hours and will take place between February and April 2023. They will be conducted at the University’s Advanced Flight Simulator Laboratory at the Edgbaston Campus, Birmingham; a ten minute walk from the University’s railway station and seven minutes by train from Birmingham New Street Station,

The invitation notes that “all experiments will be conducted in compliance with the University’s ethical procedures,” which will involve the audio and video recording of participants. Participation is “voluntary in the interests of improving flight safety and no renumeration will be received,” notes the University.

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, and interested applicants may register their interest via this survey; expected to take around two minutes to complete.
