Cockpit Systems Design and Pleasure of Flying: From Conception to Realization

The subject of our study consisted of designing, using a method oriented towards the user’s pleasure, a demonstration model (non airborne) for a French aeronautical group. In this article we will explain how we have designed an aircraft cockpit based on the pleasurable aspects of the pilot’s activity. Then we tried to compare the notions of pleasure identified in the activity of flying a plane, aspects symbolizing the stronger sensations and the aspects of tranquillity and avoidance. We have attempted to formally translate this analogy, whilst respecting the design rules of ergonomics and current official aeronautical rules.
