The oculometer training tape technique (OT 3 ) aimsto enhance aviation training by 1) allowing theflightinstructors to provide real-time feedback, 2) improving debriefing sessions by playing back the traineepilot’s scan behavior, and 3) editing didactic videos based on the scan behavior of experienced pilots. Despite the original positive evaluations ofits usefulness, the OT 3 hasfailed to gain traction in aviation training programs. This is probably due to the technical difficulties as well as the intrusiveness/bulkiness of the equipment needed. Modern non-intrusive eye trackers,integrated witha forward facing scene-camera, can record pilots’ eye movements and, simultaneously, capture what the pilot sees. Here, we describe the implementation of an updated OT 3 and its potential benefits to the aviation training programs of the Spanish Armed Forces.
