Abstract : Pilots' landing and formation flight performance on the ASPT simulator correlated with visual sensitivity to an expanding flow pattern and with depth tracking test errors. Pilots who were better able to differentiate different rates of expansion of a test flow pattern achieved a greater percentage of hits and misses in low-level flight and bombing tasks. Aircraft flying grades correlated with flow pattern test results. (Author)
