Ordinal logistic regression analysis of flight task ratings

Roy Bradley, William M. Maclaren

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The relationship between a pilot workload rating for a simulated flight task in the proximity of an offshore platform helideck and three experimental factors – wind speed, wind direction and pilot is investigated. The statistical method employed is ordinal logistic regression, which allows the specifying and fitting of regression relationships between ordered categorical response variables and explanatory variables. The response variable in this context is a pilot’s rating of the workload induced by certain flight tasks, measured on an ordered categorical scale 1 to 10. Estimates of the effects of the explanatory variables are given and their practical significance discussed.
