Path to Safety

Humans are very poor at detecting change (dostrzeganie/ wykrywanie zmian), especially if the change occurs gradually (zmiana odbywa się błyskawicznie), or during a period when their minds are otherwise engaged. Many of us have fallen victim to (wielu z nas padło ofiarą) this very human feature. Perhaps you have looked directly at an engine oil pressure gauge and failed to notice its indication (dostrzec wskazanie)…or what it was displaying (wyświetlał/ ukazywał) only a few minutes earlier? You looked, but did not see. Or possibly you have found yourself in a situation where you were distracted (rozproszony/ zdekoncentrowany) at the very moment you needed to accomplish an important task (wykonać ważne zadanie).

Change Blindness (ignorowanie zmian) (CB) and Inattentional Blindness (niezamierzone ignorowanie) (IB) are very real and persistent problems for all humans, but may have grave consequences for pilots. Pilots must be prepared to accomplish multiple tasks (realizować wiele zadań), sometimes in very quick succession (błyskawicznie następujące po sobie). Until recently, helicopter cockpits have been bursting with switches, gauges, and annunciators. Each one designed to immediately capture, or continually maintain, the attention  (natychmiast zwrócić/ przyciągnąc lub stale utrzymywać uwagę) of the pilot. Unfortunately, the pilot simply cannot sustain such vigilance on so many competing items.

So how does the Part Time Display Concept help solve our predisposition to CB and IB? Simply put, this design concept improves both awareness and safety (polepsza/ poprawia/ zwiększa poziom świadomości i bezpieczeństwa). During flight, Helionix continually monitors the aircraft systems and will immediately inform the pilot when/if any vehicle or engine parameter(s) are out of range (poza zakresem/ poza standardem), or trending out of range. The pilot need not monitor parameters such as oil pressures or temperatures, torque (obroty), TOT (transmission oil temperature),  etc. Helionix will notify the pilot (powiadomi pilota) via an appropriate message within the message zone of the FND (Flight and Nav Display). The concept is not only brilliant…but it is effective (skuteczny)!
