Abstract : The introduction of the glass cockpit redistributed, rather than reduced flight crews- workloads. Pilots now spend more resources managing the various systems in the cockpit. The specific problems of using cockpit automation are well documented; the more generic problem of cognitive mismatches is considered here. A taxonomy of the types of cognitive mismatches is defined before considering how to manage them. Allowing the glass cockpit to continue to evolve in the same way will not help. A call is made for the development of a new integrated cockpit architecture that better supports the task of flying an aircraft.
