This research overview the characteristics of the pilots’ attention and the factors which could influence it. There is described the problem of the pilots’ workload in the cockpit and its issue on the flight safety. The goal of this research is to find out the gaze movement pattern of student-pilots and compare it to the theoretical models. The gaze direction is closely related to the attention concentration point. So by means of gaze tracking it is possible to determine where the pilot concentrates his attention. It is accomplished by implementation of mobile eye-tracking system which consists of one eye camera and one scene camera. The experimentation was accomplished and data collected in the flight simulator. At the end of the thesis research conclusions are represented.
