Abstract: Numerous studies in high-risk work settings indicate that about 80% of all accident causes in aviation can be attributed to human factors. Moreover Endsley point out that about 88% of all accident causes can be reduced to Situation Awareness (perception [76.3%], comprehension [20.3%], and anticipation [3.4%]). Thus an effective training concept is necessary to support pilots in achieving and maintaining appropriate scanning skills (perception). The following talk aims at demonstrating a new training design for general aviation pilots which involves theoretical information about scanning techniques/situation awareness and which is combined with either simulation exercises or in-flight exercises with flight instructors – both flown with eye tracking glasses, which provide adequate and detailed feedback about scanning behaviour of pilots. Besides theoretical training content, training development (including survey of general aviation pilot’s information about their scanning techniques) as well as training and scenario design will be introduced.
