Abstract:

Flicker fusion frequency was determined repeatedly in 32 pilot instructors before and after a working day. No significant correlation was discovered between the alteration in flicker fusion frequency and the state of fatigue. Conclusions In this study, the flicker fusion test offered no promise as an objective measure of fatigue in aviation. Author
