The report describes the results of flight trials, at night and in low visibility, with restricted peripheral vision. They were undertaken to discover whether lack of peripheral vision was a major cause of poor landing performance on conventional aircraft flight simulators. The results show that landing performance in flight is almost unaffected by loss of peripheral vision, even in poor visibility. Author
