Cockpit automation, and particularly the introduction of flight management systems, has vastly increased the cognitive component of pilot risk. Requirements for simulating pilot behaviour are thus related to the general description of situation awareness and decision making phenomena. This paper identifies some aspects of decision making to be taken into account to cover relevant features of pilot decision making, with a particular focus on the influence of the context on the workload and the decision making strategy. The paper also examines their implementation in already existing models such as COSIMO. Finally, the possibility of simulating these aspects of decision making within a model based on the concept of goals is discussed.
