Abstract:

The purpose of the project was to determine the effectiveness of a system of low cost aids in improving visual search and in providing practice in search technique during simulated cross-country flight. Twelve privatecommercial and three student pilots having widely varied amounts of flight time were given practice in dividing their time between in-cockpit flight duties and external visual search. This time-sharing practice was conducted in a general aviation-type ground trainer using low-cost slide equipment to project images of intruder aircraft on possible collision courses. Author
