The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of pilotage sensor field-of-view (FOV) size and location on pilot performance. Eight pilots performed disparate flying tasks in an advanced rotorcraft simulator. Sensor FOV size and location were examined in a four (FOV) by two (sensor location) by two (replications) within-subjects factorial design. Three variables showed reliable effects of varying FOV on performance of two flight tasks. Pilot workload ratings also showed a significant effect of FOV size.
