Vision is the dominant sense used by pilots and visual misperception has been identified as the primary contributing factor in numerous aviation mishaps, resulting in hundreds of fatalities and major resource loss.Despite physiological limitationsMoreVision is the dominant sense used by pilots and visual misperception has been identified as the primary contributing factor in numerous aviation mishaps, resulting in hundreds of fatalities and major resource loss.Despite physiological limitations for sensing and perceiving their aviation environment, pilots can often make the required visual judgments with a high degree of accuracy and precision.

At the same time, however, visual illusions and misjudgments have been cited as the probable cause of numerous aviation accidents, and in spite of technological and instructional efforts to remedy some of the problems associated with visual perception in aviation, mishaps of this type continue to occur. Clearly, understanding the role of visual perception in aviation is key to improving pilot performance and reducing aviation mishaps.This book is the first dedicated to the role of visual perception in aviation, and it provides a comprehensive, single-source document encompassing all aspects of aviation visual perception.

Thus, this book includes the foundations of visual and vestibular sensation and perception- how visual perceptual abilities are assesed in pilots- the pilots perspective of visual flying- a summary of human factors research on the visual guidance of flying- examples of specific visual and vestibular illusions and misperceptions- mishap analyses from military, commercial and general aviation- and finally, how this knowledge is being used to create the next generation of aviation visual perception.
