Abstract:

Pilot response to peripheral vision cues relating to aircraft bank angle was studied during instrument flight in two simulators representing 1 a conventional, medium weight, piston engine airliner, and 2 a heavy, jet engine, sweptwing transport. There was no statistically significant difference found between pilot performance in the dissimilar type aircraft, suggesting that peripheral vision cues may be equally useful regardless of differences in size, weight and flight characteristics of fixed wing aircraft.
