This research focused on novice-expert differences in memory components of flight situation awareness. In Experiment 1, pilot memory for different forms (spatial or verbal) of cockpit situational information was tested immediately after presentation of the information (immediate recall) or after 30-s delay filled with an intervening task (delayed recall). In Experiment 2, pilot performance on a situation awareness (SA) task was examined and correlated with memory measures obtained in Experiment 1. Results suggest that an expertise effect occurs in delayed recall but not in immediate recall and representation of situational information in memory required to perform a SA task varies as a function of expertise. Theoretical accounts of results are discussed in the context of psychological theories of expertise.
