Without visual feedback, humans perceive tilt when experiencing a sustained linear acceleration. This tilt illusion is commonly referred to as the somatogravic illusion. Although the physiological basis of the illusion seems to be well understood, the dynamic behavior is still subject to discussion. In this study, the dynamic behavior of the...

This paper describes two simulator experiments studying how accurately pilots can judge and reproduce specific g loads and how their control behavior depends on the sensation of physical g loads during unusual attitude recovery. Seventeen commercial pilots participated. The first experiment shows that pilots tend to overestimate g loads,...

This paper investigates how pilots' control behavior and motion perception during a simulated roll maneuver depends on the level of normal g load using a centrifuge-based simulator. Fourteen commercial pilots participated in the study, actively controlling a series of coordinated bank angle changes between -30 and +30 degrees. By changing the...

The aim of the collaborative European research project ‘Simulation of UPset Recovery in Aviation’ (SUPRA) is to develop breakthrough simulator technologies for teaching pilots to detect and recover from adverse flight upsets that could lead to unusual attitudes and loss-of-control. In the project, the high-performance research simulator...
