In this study, a dynamic field theory (DFT) based cognitive model of a pilot performing pitch attitude control of a 3 degree of freedom aircraft model is presented. The cognitive model is validated by comparing the pilot model’s pitch attitude hold performance with real flight test results of a human pilot on a real aircraft. A high degree of similarity was observed between the behaviour of the human pilot and the DFT model. The paper contains a brief summary of older control theory based pilot models, describes the similarities between control theoretic and DFT approaches, and shows the DFT pilot’s flexibility to adapt to different temporal behaviours
