Abstract:

Introduction Spatial disorientation SD continues to be a largely unyielding problem in military and civilian aviation. SD training remains the sole solution of copying with this effect. In order to have more efficient training, we asked pilots the illusion they have probably had experienced in their flying career, attempting to study the prevalence and incidence rates of illusions and their correlation with specific types of aircraft.
