General aviation (GA) accidents occurring due to lack of orientation awareness in space have increased considerably in the past decade . Spatial disorientation limits a GA pilot's ability to detect and recover quickly from unusual attitudes. At the DASC 2006 our paper titled "flight test evaluation of synthetic and peripheral vision displays in general aviation" described an initial study into the use of Synthetic and Peripheral Vision displays for minimizing spatial disorientation . This paper presents a follow-on study consisting of a series of human factors flight trials evaluating a prototype synthetic and peripheral vision display system.
