Ten certificated pilots were given time-sharing training using a low-cost visual in-cockpit device. Training sessions in a ground trainer with subsequent flight checks in an airplane showed marked improvement in cockpitoutside visual scanning and piloting proficiency. Pilots expressed favorable comments regarding use of the concept for student pilot training. Three pilot training schools also evaluated an in-cockpit aural signal signal device designed to prompt pilots to scan outside for other aircraft. The device received unfavorable comments from student pilots and flight instructors due to excessive amounts of annoyance and distraction, and was not recommended as a training aid. Author
