Abstract : A comprehensive listing of visually dependent and visually assisted flight tasks in Air Force fighter and attack aircraft training was developed. Additionally, the list specifies whether the tasks are trained exclusively in daylight or also at night. The individual visual tasks are provided for 11 major areas of training: (a) takeoff and landing, (b) aerobatics, (c) aircraft handling maneuvers, (d) stalls, (e) basic formation, (f) navigation, (g) air refueling, (h) tactical formation, (i) air-to-air combat, (j) low-altitude maneuvers, and (k) surface attack. Practical applications of the task listing in aviation research and development are discussed. Keywords: Aviation research and development, Pilot training, Visual flight tasks.
