Abstract
The report documents the eye movement patterns of pilots landing Sea King helicopters on HMCS destroyers at night, when there was no visible natural horizon. The useage patterns of the currently fitted visual landing aids are discussed. Frame by frame analysis determined the percentage of time spent looking at, and the frequency and duration of use of, the various landing aids. The results are tabled and compared to the results obtained in daylight conditions. The study concludes that pilots alter their visual behaviour between daylight and night conditions in terms of the areas viewed, and the frequency and duration viewing those areas.
