Abstract:

Based on a class I aircraft accident of the German Navy in 1997 and a class 1 mishap of the German Air Force in 1998 with the loss of all 4 crewmembers. Division III of the GAF Institute of Aviation Medicine installed a program for Tornado aircrew to demonstrate various SD situations in the Flight Orientation Trainer. Although during these accidents every possible flight information was available to the aircrew, the situation was not perceived as disorienting and dangerous but the focus stayed on the primary task intended or wrong priority chosen.
