The potential use of Helmet Mounted Displays HMD as an alternate source of flight information was examined. Air Force T-41 instructor pilots were trained to perform two complex flight maneuvers in a GAT 1 flight simulator using a monocular visor-projected display as the sole source of aircraft flight information. A search pattern and weapons delivery maneuver were flown utilizing standard aircraft instruments. The pilot flew the maneuvers under four experimental conditions 1 referencing the simulator instruments only, 2 referencing the simulator instruments with selected instruments occluded, 3 referencing the helmet display only, 4 referencing the helmet display with selected instruments occluded.
