Abstract
The eye movements of aircrew during flight have been a topic of interest to military and civilian researchers for over 60 years. Studies in flight simulators and real aircraft have used eye movements as a window onto operators’ processing of information from cockpit instruments and displays. This body of research has demonstrated strong links between eye movements and pilot expertise, workload, and situational awareness. Other applications of eye tracking in the cockpit have also been proposed, such as usability analysis, instructor-feedback, and aircraft input. The present report reviews this body of research to date and provides recommendations for future research and applications.
