Cockpit invention promises to boost pilot spatial awareness
from Air Traffic Management
An Australian pilot stands to revolutionize the global aviation industry with his world-first idea for a cockpit lighting system that could solve the problem of spatial disorientation. Spatial disorientation involves pilots being unable to detect the position of their aircraft when they have no visual reference of the horizon, such as when flying in dark or cloudy conditions. It is believed to have contributed to accidents including Air France 447.
