Aviation Visual Perception Book Description:

This book is the first dedicated to visual perception in aviation. It includes the foundations of visual and vestibular sensation and perception; how visual perceptual abilities are assessed in pilots; the pilot's perspective of visual flying; a summary of relevant human factors research; examples of specific visual and vestibular illusions and misperceptions; mishap analyses; and, finally, how this knowledge is being used to better understand visual perception in aviation's next generation.

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 limitations for sensing and perceiving their aviation environment, pilots can often make the required visual judgments

Research has attempted to identify which visual cues are most salient for glide path (GP) performance during an approach to landing by a pilot flying in both rich and impoverished visual conditions. Numerous aviation accidents have occurred when a shallow GP was induced by a black hole illusion (BHI) or
