This report describes an experiment conducted to provide data for constructing a mathematical pilot model for low visibility landing. The experiment was conducted using a hybrid flight simulator equipped with a three degree of freedom motion system and a terrain board visual system. The aircraft simulated was a C-135B and low visibility was simulated using a sky plate in the visual system. Pilots were obtained from the USAF Instrument Flight Center. Gust disturbances were used to increase pilot workload. The worst visibility simulated was Category 2 minimums.
