Pilots encounter dynamic situations in which there are drastic changes in weather or where their primary equipment fails. The glass cockpit interface, a computerized system, is often used in today's aircraft to integrate information about aircraft status onto a visual display. When adverse, life-threatening, situations occur, pilots have to make decisions, with or without their primary equipment. One of the most important tools that pilots have to prepare for adverse situations is simulation training. This study evaluated the link between situational awareness and eye behavior while using a flight simulator to present different adverse situations.
