The paper provides an overview of AGATE, and specifically work package six 1998 and 1999 activities. Reports on specific activities will include a summary of the results of the 1998 Curriculum and Multi-Function Display efforts. A discussion of 1999 and 2000 activities related to the Curriculum and the Pilots Flight Display will demonstrate the efforts being undertaken to take into consideration the concerns related to human error and safety associated with automated systems in the GA cockpit. The primary goal of AGATE is to establish guidelines, standards, and certification methods for both the airplane and training/certification processes, thus work package six is focused on the training and certification process of the pilot. However, equal attention is paid to human factor and safety issues, especially those surrounding the introduction of a glass cockpit and automation to a general aviation (GA) type aircraft. Of particular concern to work package six are the issues surrounding improved safety systems for the AGATE pilot. Considerable progress is being made within AGATE to develop enhanced MFD and PFD displays for GA aircraft. The paper will explore potential display improvements as they relate to training situational awareness and decision-making
