Laboratory experiments are described in which subjects viewed motion pictures of shallow and steep aircraft approaches and made judgments of time to touchdown. Psychophysical functions of these judgments are discussed. Subjects viewed still photographs made during both shallow and steep aircraft approaches and judged distance to touchdown. Psychophysical functions of the judgments are also discussed. A pilot study for a field experiment was then conducted. Results support the laboratory indications that time to touchdown estimates are a linear function of time.
