This information guide provides an overview of the capabilities of the FAA Technical Center's Human Factors Laboratory (HFL) and how those capabilities are being used to support research critical to the development and implementation of the National Airspace System (NAS).

The HFL was officially opened and dedicated on November 2,1992. This unique state-of-the-art facility is the only one of its kind in the FAA. It is important that the information about this facility is made available not only to FAA organizations, but academic and private sector organizations as well.

This information guide specifically provides the reader with background on why the facility was developed, an in-depth overview of it's unique design capabilities, a description of the type of work the HFL will be engaged in, and a representative sampling of the directions and goals of the HFL.
