This study examined pilots ’ visual scan patterns during a simulated high-speed, low-level flight and how their scan rates related to flight performance. As helicopters become faster and more agile, pilots are expected to navigate at low altitudes while traveling at high speeds. A pilot ’ s ability to interpret information from a combination of visual sources determines not only mission success, but also aircraft and crew survival.
