Abstract:

Since the pilot is required to visually detect potentially hazardous intruders in the Pilot Warning Instrument PWI concept, the question of pilot air-to-air visual detection is critical. The significant conclusion from the data presented in the report is that under good Visual Flight Rule VFR conditions, if the pilot is given accurate information on the location of intruding aircraft he has a high likelihood of seeing the intruder in sufficient time to take any required evasive action. The report presents two papers summarizing data from two different air-to-air visual detection activities.
