Abstract: The human factors characteristics of the AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopter crew stations were assessed. The assessment was based on a survey administered to 43 AH-64D pilots. Results of the assessment indicate that crew workload is manageable during missions and that crews experience lower workload levels, greater situational awareness, and are able to make decisions more quickly in the AH-64D than in the AH-64A. Results also indicate that pilots have not experienced significant problems when using most of the AH-64D crew station controls, displays, and subsystems
