A high-performance aircraft simulator facility employing a two-axis air combat maneuvering simulation was used to investigate pilot response to an aircraft cockpit spin indicator system. The time required to correctly respond to departed flight, spin, and engine stall indications was measured using F-14 NATOPS procedures. Incorrect and inadequate responses were also recorded. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of sixteen data items was performed for eighteen test subjects during twenty-seven test runs and compiled using eight category classifications. Favorable performance and opinion were obtained. Detailed conclusions and recommendations are presented,
