Simone Sporer-Fellner untersucht in dieser Studie den Einfluss von unterschiedlich klassifizierten Entscheidungssituationen auf mentale Beanspruchung und Entscheidungsverhalten von Piloten während des Landeanflugs. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Entscheidungsfindung an sich als auch die sich daraus ergebenden Konsequenzen die mentale Beanspruchung beeinflusst. Analysen des Entscheidungsverhaltens weisen darauf hin, dass die kognitive Ebene der Entscheidungssituation besonders von Bedeutung ist hinsichtlich der Anzahl der Kriterien, die zur Entscheidungsfindung herangezogen werden, sowie der Antizipation von Entscheidungskonsequenzen auf den weiteren Flugverlauf.
